On the test day

What can I take to the test?

You will need to take a printout of your Admission ticket, appropriate photo identification document (ID), pens and pencils. Bottled water is also permitted. Please read the information on the Permitted testing aids page.

How long is the test?

The test consists of two hours of test time, including reading time. You should anticipate being at the test centre for at least four hours for all testing procedures to be completed. For remote proctoring, candidates should allow up to 3 hours or more (in the event of technical issues) for their test session.

What identification do I bring on the test day?

On the test day you will be required to show one form of photo-bearing identification. The only acceptable forms of identification are:

  • Current passport
  • Current photo-bearing driver licence (learner permit, probationary or full licence. South Australia and New South Wales digital driver's licence will not be accepted
  • Current photo-bearing Australian Keypass
  • Current photo-bearing Australian Proof of Age Card
  • Current photo-bearing New Zealand Kiwi Access Card

The photograph on your identification document must be recognisable as a likeness to you as you are on the day of the test. No other form of identification will be accepted including any photo identification in digital format. If you do not have one of these forms of identification, please allow enough time to organise one before the test date as you will not be admitted to the test without an approved form of identification. Some of these identification documents can take approximately one month to obtain. Express processing services are available for some of these forms of identification, however you are strongly advised to arrange your identification well before the test date. Please see the relevant links above for more information. 

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR LICENCES: if you are intending to use your driver’s licence as identification and need to renew or update your licence before the test date (for example changing from a learner’s permit to a probationary licence or from a probationary licence to a full licence), please ensure you allow adequate time to receive the new licence. A temporary licence document without a photograph will not be accepted as identification. Please note: South Australia and New South Wales digital driver's licence will not be accepted

Documents that have expired will NOT be accepted under any circumstances. Student cards and photocopies of identity documents are also not acceptable forms of ID.

Your date of birth, first and last name on your identification must match your Admission Ticket details.

If you do not present one of the above acceptable identification documents, together with your printed Admission Ticket, you will not be able to sit the LAT and your registration fee will be forfeited.
