SJT identification requirements

In line with the Pearson VUE ID policy, from the list below, you are required to present one form of original (no photocopies or digital IDs), valid (unexpired) government issued ID that includes your name, recent recognisable photograph, and signature.

International Travel Passport,

Driver’s licence (photo card),

Military ID (including spouse & dependents),

Identification card (national/state/province identity card),

Alien registration card (green card, permanent resident, visa),

Local language ID (not in Roman characters) – accepted only if issued from the Country you are testing in.

All forms of acceptable IDs must be issued by the country in which you are testing. If you do not possess qualifying ID issued from the country you are testing in, an international travel passport in roman characters from your country of citizenship is required. If you are European Union candidate testing within the EU zone, you may also provide a valid, unexpired EU identity card as primary ID.

Expired forms of ID are not acceptable, unless accompanied by valid renewal papers. A government issued ID missing a visible signature or one that has an embedded signature must be supplemented with an original, valid ID that has at least a matching name and recent recognizable photo, or a matching name and signature.

The first and last name you used on your Oriel application form and thus your Pearson VUE account must match exactly the first and last name on the ID that is presented on the day of your appointment.

If you have any issues with your ID or if your name does not match your ID, you must contact the UKFPO at least 3 weeks before the appointment in order to change the name on the system or in some cases, grant an exception which will be communicated to the test centre.

Please note, middle names are not part of the ID check and therefore, you do not need to provide ID for any middle names.
