These are global test dates and the British Council IELTS test dates and IDP IELTS test dates are the same. They will also be the same for the tests held at other centres, such as International House. 

However, some centres may not hold all the tests if test demand is lower. Speaking tests may also sometimes be held on a different day to the rest of the test if they cannot all be done on the same day. 

So you should contact your local test centre to check and check carefully any correspondence you get from the test centre after booking your IELTS test to be sure you know what dates you have been given. 

There are dates for the paper-based test. The computer-based test is held on most days on those test centres that have this test.
