u take your passport when you go out?!?

yes report it lost, get a new one, then apply for a driving licence - much easier to carry (and you dont look so wierd when you present it for ID)

I think you need your passport to apply for the driving license, I know i did, get down to the post office and pick up the pack and see if u need it! you might get away with sending your birth certificate

you need to report it as lost or you won't get a new one.

One of my exes had his stolen when the house was burgled. I remember he had to fill in extra forms to get a new one.

u can only send ure birth certificate if its the proper large paper copy, they also give ure parents a smaller copy but that wont count with the DVLA! who do u report a lost passport to anyway????? u just get a new application form from the post office and tick the ' i need a new one cos i lost my last one ' box!! :cool: or if u need it quickly go 2 liverpool, they do it much faster! but it depends where u live!

i think you might be able to sen daway your birth certificate instead to get a driving license so you'll probably be alright with that one. probably best to report it missing anyways tho, you might get it back and you won't lose anything by trying. if it was left in a club or something you could also trying ringing them cos its the type of them they'd keep until it was claimed i would have thought

Absolutely. Report it to the police asap (and if possible get a reference number from them). You might be able to get the cost of a new one on your household insurance - depends what your excess is. It does cost more, I think, to get one re-issued, you can do it in a week if you use their expensive service (about 60 quid ?)

i wouldn't use a passport as ID for going out imo. it's far too valuable a document, and is likely to get bent/spoiled, and obviously, the risk of it getting lost is quite high.

you should think of some other form of ID mate
