Formula 1's ban on in-season testing has been amended following controversy over Michael Schumacher's abortive return for Ferrari last year.
The seven-time world champion, who retired in 2006, was unable to drive Ferrari's 2009 car because of the ban.
Ferrari asked permission for Schumacher to test but three rival teams objected.
But a rule change, announced on Friday, will allow one day of testing at a non-F1 circuit if the substitute driver has not raced in F1 for two seasons.
A neck problem prevented Schumacher from returning to his old team to stand in for the injured Felipe Massa.
The German has subsequently returned to the sport with the new Mercedes team and will drive alongside Nico Rosberg this season at the age of 41.
