Important Test Day Tips

Review your appointment confirmation email to confirm your appointment time.

Arrive for your exam at least 30 minutes prior to your appointment time, regardless of whether your appointment is at a Test Center or remotely proctored.

For Test Center appointments, review driving directions. Allow sufficient travel time including traffic, parking, locating the test center, and checking in. Depending on the location of the testing facility, parking fees may apply. Prometric does not validate parking.

Bring a valid, non-expired government-issued ID with a current photo and signature. The name on the identification must match the name that appears on your examination application. If there is a discrepancy, please notify ACVP as soon as possible. Your middle name is not considered when matching the name on your ID to your application. 

Prometric is unable to provide a completely noise-free environment. Consider bringing your own soft ear plugs or use the test center-provided head phones.
