Yes, your wife needs a "fresh" evidence of English ability. 🙂 

 My wife's PTE taken on August 2017. it was just 10 months old when we applied 887 on June 29, 2018. As per her PTE scorecard, the score will expire on August 2019...So, do you think she needs to take the English exam again, OR it doesn't matter as the score was valid at the time of application?!.. Thanks

I don't think that's correct. You can have overall band 4.5 . Pls someone confirm

Hi I just check with migration agent they said overall 4.5. I already check that link which you mentioned but still confuse coz if you check the PTE score which clearly mentioned the overall 4.5 but in ielts section it says average that’s bit of confusion but anyways thanks very much

My friend got his 190 yesterday and he applied December last year, for just 5 months. I don’t understand why 887 processing time is 17 months (triple!) while our visas should be the most straightforward one to approve, just 52 weeks full time payslips and 2 years lease and bank statements... lets see if things change today and we need some grants

It is now 10 months since we applied for 887 visa on July 29th 2018.

Anyone else in similar situation and how long do we have to wait the processing time has gone up from 12 to 14 months to 16 to 17 months

Average and overall means the same thing, you don't need a minimum of 4.5 band for each component.
 
'To prove that you have functional English you must provide evidence of one of the following: ... An International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test result of an average band score of at least 4.5 based on the four test components of speaking, reading, listening and writing.

It will be fine, as long as it is not more than a year old at the time of application, she will not need to prove Functional English again if the Department takes an extended period to grant the 887. Only the AFP may need to be provided again if more than a year old when nearing the grant date
