ID Policy

All test takers in Pakistan must use either a valid passport or a valid state issued SMART National Identity Card as their ID (Identification Documents). Without these IDs, you will not be admitted at the Test Center on your test date. If the passport does not have a signature then the candidate should provide a supplemental ID which includes, CNIC, Driver's license, Student ID or Letter of Identification from a school. All the IDs must be original, non- expired and without having any cancelled stamp on them.

It is very important that the name which you register with exactly matches the name appearing on your ID. If there are any name discrepancies, then you would be asked for other valid IDs. Even then, if the name on your presented IDs does not match your registered name, you will be turned away.
