Authorisation Letter Request


If you will not have a valid Identification Document on the Test Day, you will need to apply for an Authorisation Letter by providing us with three colour, certified ID documents that can be used to verify your identity. The type of documents we accept include:

  • A travel document issued by immigration authority
  • An expired passport
  • A current Working With Children Check card
  • A current driver's licence 
  • A Medicare card, or health insurance card

At least two of the documents provided must contain a colour photo, and include your full name and date of birth.

As long as these documents meet our requirements, translated if required, we will provide you with an Authorisation Letter which you can print out and take with you to your Test Venue on Test Day.

You must submit these documents to us when you apply for OET. Requests for Authorisation Letters must be received no later than the application closing date for the test administration. 

Can I continue with my OET test application?

Please complete the application and enter your primary ID document number where your passport number is required. We will help you ensure everything is in order for test day.

What is a certified document?
