Can I use phrasal verbs in the IELTS Writing? One time a teacher told me that it's not allowed to use PVs in the essays on IELTS but I've found a number of sites where other teachers suggest using some PVs for the essays.

Some phrasal verbs are formal or semi-formal and so are suitable for writing task 2 e.g. bring about. Most phrasal verbs are informal and so suitable only for the informal letter type of general writing task 1 (and of course, speaking). If you need feedback on the formality of specific phrasal verbs, please ask more Qs here. People here are often interested in answering this kind of Q.
