|Photo Identification Policy Update|
Note: Effective immediately, we no longer accept post-secondary student identification cards as a valid form of identification at test sittings. We now only accept government-issued photo identification. Please see Valid Photo Identification.
If you require a form of valid identification and are a resident of British Columbia, you can learn more here.
Once you have completed the registration and your photo has been approved, you will automatically be sent a test confirmation email. You must bring a digital or printed copy of the email with you to the test sitting.
The test confirmation email will include the following information:
*If you have not received (or have lost) your test confirmation email, please
1) check the junk folder in your email, or
2) contact our office.
All test takers are now required to upload a photo at the time of registration and are no longer required to bring a photo on the day of the test. Click here for more information.
Your photo ID must be government-issued, original, valid, unexpired, and have your full name as you provided it during registration for the LPI Test. If the name that you registered with does not match the name on the photo ID you bring on your test day, you may not be allowed entry into the test.

Note: High school students registered for public sittings who have only transit “Go Cards” as identification must contact the LPI office for information about acceptable supporting identification. If you require a form of valid identification and are a resident of British Columbia, you can learn more here.
Please bring a pen, pencil and eraser with you on the day of your test. You will not be allowed to have a pencil case on your desk during the test, so you may choose to keep your pen, pencil, and eraser in a clear plastic bag.
Please note that any incidents that occur during a test sitting will be reported to Paragon Testing Enterprises.
Test takers are encouraged to use the washroom prior to the test, as there will be no extra time allotted for washroom breaks. If you absolutely must use the washroom while the test is in progress, raise your hand to alert test centre personnel, and you will be escorted to the nearest washroom.
Please do not use perfumes, aftershaves, colognes, and other scented products on test day. These products may make other people in the room sick.
The following behaviour will not be tolerated and may result in your removal from the test room or cancellation of your test scores by Paragon Testing Enterprises.
You will be asked to store all personal belongings under your seat. The only items you may have on your desk are your identification document, a pen, a pencil, an eraser, and your test booklets.
The following items are not allowed on your desk or on your person. If you are found to have any of these items with you during the test, you may be removed from the test room, and your test scores may be cancelled by Paragon Testing Enterprises. If your cellphone rings during the test, this may also result in your test booklet being taken away.
Note: Any heavy jackets or coats cannot be worn during the test. They must be stored under your seat or in your personal belongings.
