    I am taking the CompTIA PDI + beta exam tomorrow, and was just wondering what ID do you take when taking a test.

    I am taking mine at at Pearson Vue centre accoriding to the the reciept I have it says you have to take two forms of ID, Will my photo driving license and counterpart do?

    Also on the receipt it says your not allowed to take anything into the test I do not fancy leaving my wallett and phone in the car, but it looks like I may have no choice.

    What do you guys do?

    Hi I took my photo driving license and passport.

    They should only take things like phones or PDA's away, as you might be tempted to phone a friend :biggrin

    Good luck and I hope you pass. The best advice I can give is try not to rush and read the questions fully before you answer and then never go back and change.

    The the best.

    Driving licence and another form of ID (the driving licence counterpart still counts the same as the driving licence), bank card, bill, passport, etc.

    At our local testing centre, we can leave our stuff with the receptionist, but there has to be an amount of trust between both you and the receptionist.

    At the test centre I use there are lockers you can put your valubles in before going into the exam room. Might be an idea to check with the centre itself to see what facilities they offer. As for id: a passport and a driving license should do.

    When I took my ccna exam at Sunderland three years ago you have take two separate ID such as birth certificate or passport photo driving licence and paper counterpart is classed as one, as for your wallet and phone they had a safe and they were locked away for safety.

    I normally take a passport and credit card in. I leave all my valuables in a drawer at the test centre.

    I am going to take my driving licence, the last student load deferment application I got, my Birth certificate and My change of name deed.

    I changed my name in 1997

    Hopefully all some of that will do

    greenbrucelee,

    Based on my most recent testing experience with VUE, here's the required specifications for the two forms of ID:
    1. First ID - Name, Photo, Signature
    2. Second ID - Name, Signature

    I hope this helps.

    I have used my drivers license and debit card. Whatever you use, one of them has to have a photo.

    They usually let me keep my wallet, but lock up my cell phone. I try not to take any other notes or books with me.
