Moving out

What am I legally allowed to take with me when moving out at 16?
Can my parents decide to not give me my information documents? e.g(passport, birth certificate)
please reply asap

Don't move out unless you are prepared with the relevant support. Moving out too early could hinder your progress

is it legal that my parents can refuse to give me my important documents such as my passport and birth certificate at 16?

I do not think they can hold your documents against your will.

As far as i know, they can not withhold these documents. They are rightfully yours.
