I’m 17 (18 in October) and it’s my best friends birthday next weekend in which she’ll be 18 and wants to go out to a few clubs, it’s only gonna be a one time thing before I turn 18 but I don’t want to miss out. My sister said I can borrow her old passport which has expired last month but the corners have been cut However. Would I get away with using this as it still shows a valid age and me and my sister look really alike too.

Most places will accept it. I used an expired passport as ID for two years and only got turned away once.

I'd obviously advise against using her ID though, I've heard of fake/borrowed IDs being confiscated and handed to the police. At the end of the day you're making someone else break the law if they serve you so the club will want to cover themselves.

Until I was 21, I didn't have any formal ID at all. The bouncers must not have liked you.

different time in the world.....could get in with just student i.d. until there was one of those events on new years with the kid getting knocked out and going viral. Since all the clubs are owned by one company/person rules went nuclear lol.

i also messed up by saying i had valid i.d. at home lol and went and got it and was then let in.
