Documents Required at IELTS Test Centres

The most important thing to bring to the exam date is an ID, which can be either a passport/national identity card, based on which option students used to register for the test. They should have the same ID for the IELTS Speaking assessment.

At the location, staff scan the passport barcode to see if you've got the exam. The exam staff will confirm this before students walk into the room, and their Speaking examiner will double-check it. You do not need to carry your email confirmation because that procedure is no longer used.
