  • Which identity document do I need to show for an SCC / SOG exam?

    Only ID cards that are officially valid in the Netherlands are valid within the SCC and SOG systems. These are the valid ID proofs:

    • A valid passport or a valid foreign travel document;
    • A valid identity card, aliens document or aliens pass issued by a Dutch government agency;
    • A valid driving licence issued by a public authority Within the EEA countries (if accompanied by a passport photograph).

    The period of validity of an identity document may not have expired on the exam date. The SSVV has granted a temporary dispensation for expired Dutch driving licenses during the Corona period, see the relevant news article.  

    Candidates admitted to a detention centre who do not have proof of identity as described above must identify themselves by means of a (detention) declaration accompanied by a (recent and similar) photograph of the candidate.
