Identity cards

Hi does anyone one know of a proof of age card for a 25 year old. My daughter needs I.D but we can’t find any way of getting one that doesn’t involve using a driving licence or passport to apply for one. If she had a driving license she wouldn’t need I.D

    Pass card or citizen card are valid proof of age cards. Google and ìt comes up with how to apply. Also birth certificate

    Hmm citizen needs for her to still be in education. Pass I believe she needed information which she does not have, to prove her age. I would not advise her to carry her birth certificate with her, not sure that would be safe. But thanks anyway, I will carry on looking

    You can now get a disability card again you’ll need to google this as i was able to get one for my son a few years ago, there is a charge for it!

    You can order them online. Google is a good source of information on how to apply. But there’s a fee attached.

    Disability card I looked at but doesn’t prove age.
    will look into PASS. My daughter doesn’t live with me, so it takes a bit of co-ordinating.
    thanks for your help everyone

    Please don't carry your birth certificate it will get very messy.
    You could carry a photocopy of it

    A birth certificate is not proof age for ID purposes. It has to be photo ID.

    Hi @amandat29, what would be the proof of age be for? It is possible to apply for a provisional (unless you don't meet the requirements regarding vision or seizures) and use this as photo ID. There are various cards online yet it depends what purpose you'd like it for as they won't necessarily be accepted.

    Hi, proof of ID needed for when she goes out with her friends, she is 26 but looks about 12, her physical and learning disability doesn’t help. She has no vision to her left side and seizures so can’t get provisional
