    I am going out on my birthday and plan to go to a club with my friends as I've turned 18 recently. I haven't applied for my provisional yet so I don't have that as a form of ID. I was planning to use my passport but I realised that it has expired for a while now. I was planning to renew my passport when I'm 18 so I can acquire my first adult passport. I am a bit stuck now as I am unsure whether I will be able to get in with my passport. Does anybody know whether I would be able to get in and if not what else can I do? Will showing my bank card help or bringing my student ID card for college help?

    All help greatly appreciated!

    Mine expired three years ago and I've used it as proof of age since in pubs and shops with no problem (I don't go to clubs anymore so I don't know if they'd be a bit stricter); I guess it depends on whether or not the photo still looks like you.

    I guess that makes sense. Need to hope for the best! Hopefully luck will be on my side. And thanks mate.

    No to the College Card and Bank card... They aren't proof of identity! I suppose an expired passport should be alright, it's not like you are going abroad however a passport or driving licence (provisional or full) are the only way you will get into a club as they are legal documents

    Thanks for that. I just supposed if I was questioned maybe the College and Bank card could backup my validity. I hope its alright

    Possibly, but I'd also take some additional form of ID just to back it up if need be.

    You'll be fine, unless you get stuck with an irrational jobs worth - they ask for a passport or drivers license purely because it's an authoritative photo identity so as long as the photo looks like you you'll be fine
