Ok long story short; I need some photo ID but dont have a provisional driving licence and my passport has expired. I will be applying for a new passport soon but I need more photos and I cant have any new photos until I have my haircut (I have fairly long hair and cant keep it off my face really which means its invalid!?). Without a current passport I cant apply for a provisional licence and I cant apply for any other form of photo ID which is credible i.e. PASS accredited, etc.
Does anyone else have any other ideas? I can last not going clubbing for a while but I just need something to get some cigs or drink from shops. Yes I am 18 but apparently places wont take my expired passport.

You can always pay for another copy of your birth certificate if you want
the other plus side about a driving licence is that it should be acceptable id for other things like a new job etc
Yeah thats what im thinking, it will definitely come in handy again at some point. But then again ill need a new passport too at some point! Regardless, ive paid for my drivers licence so I just need my BC to come back within the next 3 weeks!

Don't you have the other copy of your birth certificate to apply for a driving licence? You should have a short and long version of it.
I have no idea, I sent my short one off to SF and I dont know if I have a long one?

Lmao, good luck with SFE and your birth certificate!
Yeah exactly and if it doesnt come back within a few weeks then the application is cancelled and my money is refunded. Why they cant use a photocopy I do not know, its Student Finance FFS - the amount of security measures they use online is ridiculous!
