Identification

On the day of your exam you will be required to show one form of photo-bearing identification.

The only acceptable form of identification is listed below.

  • Current photo-bearing Driver Licence (Learner Permit, probationary, or full licence)

The photograph in your identification document must be recognisable as a likeness to you as you will appear on the day of the test. No other forms of identification will be accepted.

If you do not have the approved form of identification, please allow enough time to organise one before the exam date. You will not be able to enter the exam centre without an approved form of identification. Some of these identification documents can take approximately a month to obtain.

Student cards and/or documents that have expired will not be accepted under any circumstances. Photocopies of identity documents are also not acceptable forms of identification.

The date of birth, and given name and surname on your identification must match those listed on your Admission Ticket details.

If you do not present the approved identification document, together with your printed Admission Ticket, you will not be able to sit the NSW Police Entrance Exam and your registration fee will be forfeited.

If for any reason you cannot provide your photo identification on the exam day (e.g. because of a lost wallet) you must provide a signed statutory declaration confirming your identity.

You must also provide (by email or mail) a certified copy of your Driver Licence to the ACER NSW Police Office no later than ten (10) days after your allocated exam sitting. Failure to do so may result in results being withheld.
