Important Information
All candidates must present a photo ID for verification of identity when signing into the test center.

  • Without exception, the first and last name on your photo ID must match the first and last name in your NCRA record. For example, if you have recently married, and NCRA has your married name, but your photo ID contains your maiden name, you will not be permitted entry to the testing facility. Or, if NCRA has your first name as Greg and your photo id has Gregory, you will not be permitted entry to the testing facility.
  • Pearson VUE uses Palm Vein Recognition for personal identification of candidates at its written knowledge test centers. Your palm will be scanned at check-in to gain entry into the test room. This is strictly for identification purposes and will not be shared with, or compared against, any outside entity.
