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 Norwich.

If you do not have either of these, you will need to provide two alternative forms of identification. Allowed alternatives are as follows: EU Country identity card, Trade Union card, British Armed Forces card, credit or debit card, National Insurance card, or your latest bank statements.
