    Doubtful, as often expired passports can often be manipulated to make it seem you're over 18 if you're not (I know several people who have had this done).

    Must work often enough for people to try to abuse it.

    Just depends on the place... my little sis used my old passport for getting into clubs for ages and only got warned not to use it next time once.
    the other day she tried to use her own expired passport to buy alcohol and the woman said she couldn't, then accepted her name badge at work as another form of ID with her name on :curious:

    i have used mine in the past, if you just flash it at them they don't usually notice.
    however some clubs do notice and tell you to push off.... no harm in trying but make sure you have some other form of id on you as well

    it's never worked at any club around me. best thing to do is to ring up and ask before hand, explaining your situation?

    don't think many bouncers would bother to look at the expiry date

    If it was just out of date but clearly you in the picture then you'd probably be ok with it but I'm not so sure they'd let be so lenient if you're 8 on the picture!

    Before I got mine renewed I kept getting told they shouldn't really let me in but they'd let it go but I do know of people who've just been told no!

    Why can't you use your current passport? It's what I have to do after my provisional was stolen.

    If it's your passport, it'll be fine as long as it's not less than a year expired.

    It would be helpful if you show that together with your university id.

    don't think many bouncers can even read.
