Identification Requirements

Identification Required for Admission to an Examination

Before you can be admitted to any examination, you MUST present current, undamaged, valid government issued identification (must have a picture and signature) that matches the name you registered with.

If you are not a U.S. citizen or permanent resident you MUST present a valid passport.

Permanent residents MUST provide permanent resident card AND a state driver's license or ID. Ensure that your ID does not say "Not Valid for Identification".

The Testing Center is required to deny admission to individuals who do not have valid identification. Check the appropriate test website and correspondence from Prometric or Pearson VUE for details.

Valid forms of indentification include:
  • Passport – must be current (required for non-U.S. citizens and while not required it is also valid for U.S. citizens)
  • Driver's license – must be current and undamaged (if it is in two pieces or invalidated with a punch by authorities we cannot accept it)
  • State issued ID card with photo – must be current and undamaged (if it is in two pieces, says "Not Valid for Identification", or invalidated with a punch by authorities we cannot accept it)
