    Hi,
    I am screwed :eek:

    I have a CompTIA exam booked for next week on Wednesday.

    I need a photo ID for it, and I think the only photo ID I have got is my passport which I have just sent of renewal and it takes 2 weeks.

    I have no photo ID, is there anyway I could get some for next week?

    Thanks

    Couldn't you re-schedule the exam to a later date?

    Yea, I guess so but I really want to do next week.

    I have taken the day off and done all my revising. I don't want to delay it any further

    CompTIA list the following as acceptable photo ids:-

    Driver's license
    Passport
    Military identification
    Employee identification card

    Have you got a photo driving license or is it the older paper version?

    I went through this prob last year and in the end re-scheduled and got the passport back (it is quite quick if you have the old one - mine was about a week).

    Other than that I spoke to Prometric or Pearson (can't remember which it was now). It is possible to get a dispension for a particular test centre but it was such a lot of hassle it was easier to re-schedule.

    Having been born and bred here and lived in the same town all my life and only 2 addresses in nearly 50 years I really object to having to provide photo id :x

    Here you go!

    Does your employee id card have a photo on?

    Mate have you tried getting a Doctor or a police officer to sign a photo of you confirming its you? Normally it has to be someone of authority that knows you maybe a director ect.

    Ask if they accept that?

    I know some banks do for people that have no ID as everyone has to start somewhere to get a passport and DL ect..
