    Hi, I recently got a passport and am current using this as ID in pubs and clubs. But I feel that this is too expensive to be taking around with me, and was wondering what the other options were for ID? I know provisional licenses are often used but this is too much money for me including school events such as prom. I would really appreciate some help on this so I don't loose my passport!!

    As far as I'm aware, those are the only two that are accepted everywhere.
    There is a citizen card I think but that's not always accepted everywhere. The provisional is probably the best bet - and it's needed for when you learn to drive anyway so it's not like you would only use it for ID! (Not as hard to lose either, as it fits easily into your purse...)

    unfortunately, these 2 are the only forms that are always accepted. You could risk it with a "pass logo" one but be prepared to get knocked back.

    Is there any particular reason why you can't save up for a provisional licence? You go out drinking, so you must have money coming in from somewhere. Just go out a few nights less for a few weeks and you will make up the £50 you need in no time.

    :yes: A few times I've gone to use my citizen card and the person serving me hasn't realised either what it is, or that they accept them.

    yeah, but to be safe you want a licence or a passport, i know loads of people that have been knocked back for using cards that are officially acceptable, but clubs just won't accept them.
