    Surely you'd be more bothered about your lost passport rather than going for two weeks without going out on the lash?

    sorry, i just found the whole thread too boring to read thru all the posts, you know how it be

    well they're just going to have to wait then
    stupid fool for losing their passport.
    It was in the very first post! Even if the thread is making your head numb at least read that before responding with something completely unhelpful.

    And no, many places will not accept anything but a passport or a driving license. At some you'd just be mocked. You're probably best staying in for a while until it turns up

    Taking your birth certificate out is a stupid, stupid idea. You're going to need it for countless more important things in your life, and if you can't manage to take your passport out without losing/damaging it, how will you manage a flimsy 18+ year old of paper? Just don't go out. You lost your passport, deal with it. Don't put your birth certificate at risk. Just wait until your provisional comes in. It shouldn't really take 2 weeks to come through...

    It provides no more proof than just taking a student card. Really you need a driving licence or passport.

    unless your a policeman with a warrant card or simimar etc...
    Eh? The police can enter any licenced premisis when they are serving alcohol without warning and without any formal reasoning.

    OP; Driving licence or passport only, club security do not have time to try and work out if the student card is real (quite often they arnt) or if the birth certificate is real.

    The only hope you have in the world is that your female with particullay large breast presented in a very obvious way, the club is either quiet or its early, and that you can flirt like hell.

    Exactly. Losing a birth certificate is also worth than losing your passport, your whole identity can be stolen, i.e. with it somebody can pretend to be you, and as a result you yourself might end up having quite a bit of trouble because of that.

    As will have already been said, the rules state:

    - Passport
    - Driving License
    - PASS-logo ID card

    The PASS-logo one is often rejected, however, as bouncers see them as easily forgeable. My brother runs a significant club and he's said to me before that PASS-logo cards are rejected by his place, too.

    Birth certificates have no picture so I wouldn't bother taking it. I've tried student ID at bars before to same effect, too, although I suppose at places frequented by University students they might, might let you in.

    Birth certificate doesn't prove your ID at all because it isn't photographic. All it proves is that somebody with your name was born :rofl:

    Are the places you usually go to VERY strict on the whole ID thing? Wont the bouncers recognise you? Im only 17 and when i go out in Bolton/Manchester, i take my bro's ID with me, but i've only ever needed it in 1 place. You could try your way, Wait in and don't go out for 2 weeks, or risk it for a biscuit and don't take any ID with you.

    I didnt particulary mean on duty, i ment when off duty if your profession requires you to have somthing as such as formal id they normally accept it.
