Exam today, no photo ID, awesome.

Just wanted to share. Took the day off work yesterday to get a few chores out of the way and decided to finally get my passport renewal sorted. Trotted off to the post office and handed all the paperwork over, including my current passport, feeling quite pleased with myself.

Only then did I decide to look at my exam info which specifies photo ID is required, I don't have a drivers licence! So I've spent the morning of the exam stressing out, on the phone with AAT and trying to find my birth certificate.

I shall turn up at the exam centre clutching a rubbish scanned copy of my passport, my birth certificate and my best 'I'm trustworthy please let me in' face.

Not what you need before an exam!

Good luck everyone. Hope those sitting the exam this afternoon have had a better morning than me!

    Hi!
    I think your college pass is enough as ID.
    I always take my driving license but so far have not been asked for it!

    Unfortunately I don't have a college ID as I'm on distance learning. I think it'll all come down to the person I get and how strict they are. Eek!

    Sharleen I'm sure you'll be fine, to be honest my passport photo looks nothing like me so if there's a jobsworth in barnsley where I'm sitting I'll have blown it!

    Good luck with your exam

    Thanks jilt, that makes me feel better. Definitely my own stupid fault for not reading the details properly before.
