The CSCS card is a way to verify that people working on construction sites have the appropriate knowledge and training. This helps prevent on-the-job mishaps that endanger everyone's health and safety. You obtain a CSCS card by taking the CSCS Health, Safety & Environment Test. There are 150 CSCS test centres nationwide including in Northampton.

What to Take With You
You must have an acceptable form of identification with you on test day. If you do not have a valid ID, you will not be able to take the CSCS exam (no exceptions). The most commonly accepted forms of identification include your UK driver’s license or passport.
If you don’t have one of these forms of identification, you will need to provide two alternative forms of identification. Acceptable forms of ID include an EU Country ID card, a Trade Union card, a British Armed Forces card, a credit or debit card, a National Insurance card, or your latest bank statement.
