I'm 17 and i wanna go out, and i want to use my mates ID, he doesnt really look like me though.

I know bouncers can take the ID off you and give it to the police, but when my mate goes back can he be charged?

And what are the chances of being successful?

i use my cousins.
basically if (I say if because most of the time they will just give it back and tell you to clear off if they dont believe it) they do give to the police all your mate has to do is say he didnt know you had it and that he must have left it at your house by mistake or something
as long as you dont look completely different then you should be fine

Loads of people i know have used other peoples ID, and none of them have been caught. I wouldnt say that any of them look like each other either. But personally, i wouldnt risk it.

You know you could change the DOB on your passport so that it show's you're 18. It's been working great for me the past few weeks.

I know loads of people who get away with it all the time, but then the other weekend my friend (who uses her sisters id) spent a couple of hours being questioned by police and got told she'd be charged if it happened again. I don't think there were any repercussions for her sister though.

Your mate could have lost it and someone picked it up, as long he doesn't admit to lending it you but just say he lost it he shouldn't get charged.
Make sure you learn EVERYTHING on the ID. Also learn the signiture Ive been asked to sign to prove its my ID. If its a passpot know all dates of holidays on the stamps and his next of kin on back page

But bouncers are not stupid if it doesnt look like you they wont accept it

I wouldn't do it tbh, don't think it's worth it. You're 17, you've only got a few months to wait ffs. Why risk it? :rolleyes: It's not that long you know.

My boyfriend used to always use his mate's ID but had it taken off him once. It wasn't given to the police, but his friend had to go and collect it from the club the next day.

Why not just wait till you're 18?

Anyway I know people who have gotten away with it. My friend wanted to borrow mine once when she was 17 and and we look nothing alike she din't get in though.

Errr, most bouncers just tend to look at the date of birth to be honest. My friend used a Chinese girl's I.D she found off the floor... and they didn't think twice about letting her in, my mate's not even Chinese.

Most do not even give it a second glance. If they do then just say it is a old photo.

I used my brothers all the time when I was 16 - 18.

More likely the person using it would be dealt with. If you're found in possession of an official ID document not your own then you are likely to be arrested for theft. You may also be committing ID card offences and possibly fraud. However, not than I'm condoning it, if you behave and don't come to the attention of the police then you are not likely to be searched...

It amazes me the risks people will take to get a bit of alcohol..

I dunno, I used to do it all the time with using my friends who, I don't think looks like me and it worked everywhere. (I'm 18 now)

But the other day my ID was confiscated and I thought the girl looked like me a lot. They are getting stricter, be careful. They aren't doing anything about it (police wise) but they might start to in the future as its fraud. and an arse to get back.

Girl on the right is me, girl in the middle borrowed my ID, it got confiscated.

can't be bothered to quote everyone, I simply printed off a 0 in the same font and size as the passport, cut it out and stuck it on over the 1 in 1991 with a tiny bit of selotape. Obviously i did it to a decent standard, and it's been working great. It even stood up to someone shining the little blue light on it for about ten seconds. It helps that I'm 6'4" so they don't look too closely most of the time.

Best bit of all is that if you need to use it properly to go on holiday you can just take the selotape off and there's nothing permanent unlike using a pen.

Apart from similar hair you look completely different, particularly the cheekbones and the nose.

That's harsh, did she say the wrong name or something?
