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

The only acceptable forms of identification for both Police and PSO applicants are listed below.

  • Current photo-bearing Driver Licence (Learner permit, probationary, or full licence)
  • Current passport
  • Current photo-bearing Australian Keypass

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

If you do not have one of these approved forms 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, and some of them can take approximately one 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, given name and surname on your identification must match those listed on your Test Admission Ticket details.

If you do not present one of the above approved identification documents, together with your printed Admission Ticket, you will not be able to sit the Victoria 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. In addition to this, you must also provide (by email or mail) a certified copy of your Driver Licence to the ACER Victoria Police Office no later than three (3) business days after your allocated exam sitting. Failure to do so may result in results being withheld.
