Requirements for Admission to Examination Center


Please review the Procedures for Exam Day web page for details on requirements.

All Paper/Pencil Exams (Multiple-Choice and Written Answer):

Admission into an examination center, each candidate must present a valid Acknowledgement Letter (printed online version or on an electronic device - Candidates who choose to use an electronic version of their Acknowledgement Letter are responsible for knowing their candidate number or having their candidate number on a separate piece of paper.) which serves as the ticket of admission, and valid identification with a signature and a photograph (e.g., driver's license, passport, school or work I.D., etc.). If a photo I.D. is not available, the candidate must present two forms of identification with a signature, with at least one form containing a physical description (height, weight, hair color, eye color, etc.). Each candidate will be required to sign in at the examination center. A candidate who does not present valid identification, or who refuses or is unable to provide a matching signature, Will Not Be Permitted, to take the examination.
