How to sign up
Registration consists in entering your personal details into the Alice portal. When you have finished the system will give you a user name and ask you to choose a password.
While you do this, keep your tax code (codice fiscale) and I.D. card handy. Once you have entered your personal details, the system will automatically check the tax code and make sure it is correct: if it turns out to be incorrect, check if other personal details such as place and date of birth are correct.
If the system realizes that your tax code already exists, it means that you have already registered. You will have to recover your previous user name and password.
In order to take the test, it is not enough to just type in your personal details: you will then need to click on “Sign up to the evaluation test”
