ACCEPTABLE IDExam Day Identification Requirements

Candidates will be required to present one form of acceptable identification at the test center. If candidates arrive at the test center without acceptable identification, they will be turned away and required to reregister and pay another exam fee. If candidates paid the additional international scheduling fee, that will be forfeited as well.

Identification Requirements

All forms of identification must be valid and meet the following requirements:

  • Physical (non-digital)
  • Non-expired
  • Government-issued
  • Include name (in Roman characters)
    •  First and last names printed on the presented identification must match exactly the first and last names found on the Authorization to Test (ATT) email. 
  • Include recent photograph
  • Include signature
    • If the ID does not contain a signature but meets all other ID requirements, a secondary form of identification is required. The signature on the secondary ID must match exactly with the first and last name on the primary ID and with the names that you provided when you registered. The secondary identification must contain a signature (in Roman characters).

U.S. Sanctioned (Embargoed) Country ID

Due to U.S. trade restrictions, candidates living in a sanctioned country aren’t allowed to take the REx-PN. This is a federal requirement by The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of Treasury.

Candidates using a passport from a sanctioned country as identification must also present proof of residency (government issued identification) from a non-sanctioned country to take the REx-PN.
