Important Notice about Your Registration and Your Identification

It is very important that your name on your identification and the name with which you registered to take the exam are exactly the same. If you have two family names please remember to enter both in the registration system. The "Last Name" field accepts more than one name. Please do not register with a shortened name or nickname. If the name on your registration does not match the identification you bring to the test center, regretfully you will not be allowed to take the test and no refund will be issued. If you have any questions about this policy, please call prior to the Silver Zone scheduling deadline at 202-828-0600.

Es muy importante que su nombre en su identificación y el en que usted está registrado sean exactamente iguales. Si usted tiene dos apellidos por favor recordar poner los dos en el sistema del registro. El espacio de "Last Name" acepta más de un nombre. Si el nombre en que usted está registrada y el nombre en su identificación que ocupará la fecha de su examen no son iguales, lo sentimos mucho, pero no estará permitido tomar el examen. Si usted tiene cualquier pregunta sobre esta política por favor llamar lo mas pronto posible al 202-828-0600.
