    A lot of off licenses have application forms for a proof of age card, it's nationally recognised and I think most places accept them.

    Though to get one you'll need a passport or a birth certificate I should think...

    EDIT: You can get replacement birth certificates for about £7. I have one and they hold just as much legal weight (if that makes sense) as an original copy.
    Just go to the place where your birth was registered. They'll ask a few questions, take your money, and in 10 minutes, you can prove how old you are again.

    Our student union issued us ID cards where half of them accidentally had the default birthdate still set at 30/06/80. For the purpose of clubs, I am officially 24

    My college id card was stupid, the date it said it was printed was 3 months after it expired

    Isn't it just easier to get a provisional driving lisence.
    This way, you have 'official' identification and you won't have to go through all the bother of applying for one if you decide to learn later on.

    That's the only 'ID' my friend has, and all the pubs where I live think it's fake. He's going to apply for a passport so he'll have some official ID.

    Our sixth form made everyone apply for that card, but I didn't bother because it's just an extra way the Government can keep an eye on what we are doing.

    I've got a problem coming up. On the 20th of September I have my driving test and we start uni soon after that I think. So assuming I pass I will have to wait for a while untill after all the parties for freshers week before sending off for my full driving licence - you need to send in your provisional don't you?

    If you're planning on going to the parties in the Guild, I don't think you'll need your driving license cos you should have your Guild card by then (uni ID).

    Btw, provisional driving licences aren't usually accepted as forms of ID in clubs and pubs, unless you have the paper thing as well.
