You must arrive at the test centre at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to complete the necessary check-in procedures. It is essential that you arrive on time as applicants who arrive late will NOT be admitted entry.
You should note that children are not permitted at any of the test centres.
Identification (ID) Requirements
From the list below, you are required to present one form of original (no photo copies or digital IDs), valid (unexpired) government issued ID that includes your name, recent recognizable photograph, and signature.
- International Travel Passport,
- Driver’s license,
- 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 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 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 MSRA appointment.
Alternative Identification Documents
If you are unable to present any of the three documents listed above or, your first name and last name does not match EXACTLY with the one of the three documents that you intend to present on the day of your test, you must contact the GPNRO at the earliest opportunity at firstname.lastname@example.org for further advice and instructions on suitable alternatives.
Failure to notify the GPNRO of any discrepancies will result in you not being permitted entry to sit the test.
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 authorised for the MSRA, notes, phones, pagers, watches and wallets.
Breaks and refreshments
You are prohibited from taking food and drink into the test room. You may leave the test room for water or a comfort break, but no additional time will be allowed in your test. If you wish to leave the room, you must ask the invigilator. Please note that you will not be permitted to eat whilst in the test centre.
