The covid-19 pandemic outbreak has globally affected various aspects of life, including teaching and learning processes. This paper aims to identify the changes in French language examinations conducted in Indonesia during the outbreak and explore the French language testing conditions, such as the worldwide standardized exams in the French language like DELF: Diploma in the French Language and DALF: Advanced Diploma in the French language. This study employs a descriptive qualitative method by collecting the data through observations, interviews with the French Language Institution and the parties involved in teaching and learning processes, and finally, through documentation. The online version of this test is inexistent. Therefore, the results should allow DELF/DALF examination providers to think about an alternative for an online examination. As shown by the findings on the IFI Indonesia website, it can be concluded that: (1) some examinations, including the French language tests, have been cancelled, (2) the number of test-takers has reduced, (3) the people who are in charge of language testing have made efforts to redress this issue to adapt to this situation.
