Do You Have a Match? Check BEFORE You Go to Your Exam Appointment!
The first and last name on your exam appointment confirmation MUST MATCH the first and last name on your valid government issued photo ID or you will be denied access to sit for the exam at Prometric Test Centers. Refunds will not be granted for lack of adherence to policy.
Need to request a name change? Complete and submit CIDQ's Name Change Form at least one business day prior to exam appointment.
CIDQ cannot assist candidates who are turned away from Prometric Test Centers due to inaccuracies, including non-matching names and/or expired IDs.
An applicant's eligibility period (the window of time to schedule, take and pass the examinations) starts automatically with the first exam administration following the application's approval. For example, the FIRST exam administration for applications approved in the winter (November - January) is the spring exam (April), and the FIRST exam administration for applications approved in the summer (May - July) is the fall exam (October).
ALL THREE SECTIONS: Must be passed within 10 exam administrations
IDFX ONLY: Must be passed within 4 exam administrations + IDPX & PRACTICUM (2nd stage for IDFX ONLY applicants): Must be passed within 10 exam administrations.
