Photo ID Requirements
You must present one piece of approved photographic identification from the list below.
The name and date of birth on your ID must exactly match the name and date of birth you provided when you registered. If it does not you must contact Pearson VUE Customer Services at least 5 working days before your test appointment in order that this can be addressed. If you fail to do so you will be turned away from the test centre and will not be eligible to be rescheduled or refunded.
Acceptable Forms of Identification
The only acceptable forms of identification are listed below. You must present the original ID (not a photocopy or digital ID) and it must be valid (unexpired).
The photograph in your identification document must be recognisable as a likeness to you as you are on the day of the test.
Current photo-bearing driver's licence (learner’s permit, probationary or full licence)
Current photo-bearing Australian Keypass
Current photo-bearing Australian Proof of Age Card
Current photo-bearing New Zealand 18+ Card / Kiwi Access Card
No other form of identification such as bus/train passes, library cards and student/employer ID cards, student/employer certified letters of identification will be accepted under any circumstance. Photocopies or photos of identification and documents that have expired will also not be accepted.
Important Note - if you are intending to use your driver’s licence as identification and need to renew or update your licence before the test date (for example changing from a learner’s permit to a probationary licence or from a probationary licence to a full licence), please ensure you allow adequate time to receive the new licence. A temporary licence without a photograph will not be accepted as identification at the test centre.
We take the security of the test very seriously, therefore test centre staff have no discretion to waive or vary these identification rules. If you are unsure whether your ID is acceptable please contact Pearson VUE Customer Services for advice.
If you are refused admission because you arrived with inadequate/ invalid ID or the name on your account and identification do not match you will be recorded as a ‘no-show’ and will not be eligible for a refund or to reschedule.
