    I've lost my drivers license and I want to go out this Friday... Could I use my passport even though the picture doesn't really look like me because its old and my hair is very different.

    I know of people getting in with other people's ID when they look nothing alike... Should I bring another form of ID like my student ID to prove its me?

    Thanks x

    Passport is fine. I never use anything else.

    You could use your passport, but given the cost and hassle of replacing it if it got lost I'd suggest using another form ID.

    Passport is universally accepted. You say it doesn't really look like you but if its good enough to get you on a flight it'll be good enough to buy a pint :lol:

    I don't look like my photo on my license, and considering i look really really young and am very very small I'm surprised it worked but it has, im sure you'll be fine

    You can use your passport, but just make sure that you have it SECURE on you and you don't lose it!

    I somehow manage to get away with my expired passport (keep forgetting to replace it) and I'm 12 in my photo... I'd say you'll get away with it!

    I vary between using my driving license and my passport, if a bouncer doesn't think it looks like me they often ask for my student card or if I have a bank card/casino card with my name on it so I would suggest taking at least another 'back up' just in case!
