Please use your Candidate Exam Portal to book your exam at our Pearson VUE test centre. You can also book your exam by telephone. Please note these are the only ways you will be able to book your exam and you will need to meet the criteria below.

You are advised to bring at least 2 forms of acceptable ID each time you report to our exam center. With few exceptions, ID documents must meet all the following requirements:

  • be government issued.
  • be an original document; photocopied documents are not acceptable
  • be valid; expired documents (bearing expiration dates that have passed) are not acceptable
  • include the test taker’s full name matching exactly the name used to register
  • include a recent photograph that clearly matches the test taker
  • include the test taker’s signature

If you do not bring valid and acceptable identification, or if the name on your ID does not exactly match the name on your registration, you will not be permitted to test, and you will forfeit your exam fee as its not refundable.

Personal Belongings

You will not be allowed to take any personal items with you into the testing room. This includes all bags, books or other materials not authorized for this exam, notes, phones, pagers, watches and wallets. You will, however, be provided a locker where you can keep your personal items. It is important that all electronic items, such as cell phones should be turned OFF.
