The CPA examination employs very strict security measures. CPA candidates must have the proper identification along with their NTS to enter the test site. Some candidates have reported that they were turned away because they lacked proper identification or the name on their identification did not match the name on their NTS.
You are required to present two forms of identification, one of which must contain a recent photograph, when you arrive to take your examination. Each form of identification must bear your signature and must not be expired. If you do not present acceptable identification, you will not be allowed to take your examination and you will forfeit all examination fees for that section.
