The CASA Examination System Photographic ID Acceptable to CASA
Each candidate must provide a current photographic Identification Document (ID) acceptable to CASA as proof of identity before he/she may be permitted to sit a CASA flight crew exam. This must be shown to the exam Invigilator prior to the commencement of each examination.
An acceptable ID shall be limited to one of the following documents:
- Australian Aviation Security Identity Card (ASIC)
- Australian Aviation Identification (AVID)
- A driver's licence from any Australian State road transport licensing authority
- A Digital Driver’s Licence (DDL) from an Australian road transport licensing authority – conditions apply, see below
- A current ID of a serving member of the Australian government (State or Federal) public service or statutory body, which must carry either the official Australian Commonwealth or Australian State emblem
- A current ID of a serving member of the Australian (State or Federal) police or Australian military
- A current International passport
- A current Australian passport
- A 'Proof of Age' or 'Proof of Identity' ID issued by the Australian Federal or State Police, or an Australian State Government shop-front.
No other photo ID will be accepted. Photocopies of the above documents or identity documents which have expired, are not accepted as proof of identity. The document presented must be an original and current at the date of the exam.
If a candidate presents for a CASA examination without an acceptable form of identification as listed above, they shall not be permitted to attempt their examination.
Digital Driver’s Licence conditions
Where a Digital Driver’s Licence (DDL) is to be used, it is the candidate’s responsibility to ensure:
- their phone screen is not cracked, shattered or otherwise affected by any damage that may prevent their DDL from being viewed clearly when presented
- their phone is working, has reception and is sufficiently charged so that their DDL can be viewed
- their DDL is opened directly from the issuing road transport licensing authorities’ app, e.g. Service NSW, at the time
- in the event that for any reason, their DDL cannot be clearly seen by the Invigilator, then it is the candidate’s responsibility to provide an alternative means of satisfying the photographic identification requirements or accept being refused entry to the exam venue
- once they have used their phone to show their DDL, the phone must then be left in a position designated by the exam Invigilator for the duration of the exam.
