    What can I do at age 16?


    When you are 16 you are allowed to:

    • Get married or register a civil partnership with consent
    • Drive a moped or invalid carriage
    • You can consent to sexual activity with others aged 16 and over
    • Drink wine/beer with a meal if accompanied by someone over 18
    • Get a National Insurance number
    • Join a trade union


    • England


      You can leave school on the last Friday in June if you’ll be 16 by the end of the summer holidays.

      You must then do one of the following until you’re 18:
      • stay in full-time education, for example at a college
      • start an apprenticeship or traineeship
      • spend 20 hours or more a week working or volunteering, while in part-time education or training


    • Be paid national minimum wage for 16/17 year olds
    • Join the Armed Forces with parental consent
    • Change name by deed poll
    • Leave home with or without parental consent
    • In certain circumstances you must pay for prescriptions, dental treatment and eye tests
    • Choose a GP
    • Consent to medical treatment
    • Buy premium bonds
    • Pilot a glider
    • Buy a lottery ticket
    • Register as a blood donor, but you won't be called to give blood until you're 17
    • Apply for a passport without parental consent
