Recently VCA Infra changed the regulations concerning identification for the VCA and SOG exams. Previously, only a driving licence issued in the Netherlands was a valid means of identification. From now on it is also permitted to identify yourself with a driving licence issued by an EEA country, i.e. a country belonging to the European Economic Area.

Driving licences from the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland) are not valid as proof of identity during an SCC or SOG examination. Residents of these countries must show a passport or ID card.

The European Economic Area (EEA) includes all EU countries plus Liechtenstein, Norway and Iceland. This is an overview of all EEA countries:
- Belgium;
- Bulgaria;
- Cyprus;
- Denmark;
