Which IDs are accepted for the Duolingo English Test?

To see a list of acceptable forms of ID for each country, please visit this page. If you do not see your country listed here, or if you do not have the proper governmental identification for your country, please contact support.

Your ID must be government-issued and meet the following criteria:

  • Full date of birth
  • Photo of your face
  • Valid expiration date
  • Country of issuance
  • Full legal name

We also accept official, stamped UNHCR asylum seeker or refugee certificates that contain your face photo, name, and date of birth.

We do not accept handwritten IDs or photocopies.

Please note that you must write your name exactly as it appears on your governmental ID card. This should include your middle name and any additional given names or surnames, if these appear on your ID.
