    1. Hi Sara,

      The specific details about which ID’s are acceptable depends a little bit on which state you are taking the test. However, all states require an ID with a photo and signature. Because of that, a Birth Certificate alone is not enough. The specific ID requirements can be found when you log into your GED account and select “Test Tips” from the menu. You can also call us at 1-877-EXAM-GED (877-392-6433) with your ID related questions.
