Thank you for your question. To avoid having to take the english test then you either have to have at least a bachelors degree taught in English or have an Ofqual recognised qualification. So you need to check it your ESOl qualification meets the Ofqual requirements see here:

If you already have an esol at entry level 3 or above it ought to be fine.

You can find the UKBA rules ( if you have no already seen them) here:
