    I've heard that a lot of ids aren't accepted at clubs/bars these days. I'm thinking of getting a provisional driving licence instead as I think they're always accepted even though I won't be learning to drive . I just had a few questions:
    - for driving a provisional license is only valid for 2 years. can you automatically renew the license after 2 years or do you have to wait like a year before you get another provisional license? This is in case I decide after 2 years that I do want to learn to drive - I couldn't do this if I had to wait another year to get a provisional licence.
    - also are there any other types of ID that are always accepted? Id rather not bring my passport around

    - UK driving license
    - passport
    - national identity card
    - military id
    - PASS-certificated photocards

    If you don't have any, then you could either get a provisional license (which you'll probably need anyway) or one of these: http://www.citizencard.com/

    Ok thank you! Do you think they'll always work? Like sometimes they get rejected?

    There's no reason why it should be rejected, as they're all legally accredited photo-ids... the PASS hologram on the citizencard means that everyone should be able to accept it as valid id :cute: unless you get a really dozey bouncer who doesn't know his id...

    Also, preliminary driving licenses are valid for as long as normal driving licenses - which I think is 50 years if I remember

    Provisionals are "EU photocard driving licences" specifically accepted by Challenge 25 and by extension the pubs/shops/bars running the Challenge 25 scheme. They're fine.

    Also provisionals expire after 10 years.
