General Information

Validate UK provides official photographic proof of age ID cards which can be used in many establishments across the UK.

VALIDATE UK cards are PASS accredited; this is the UK Government approved standard for proof of age and is recommended by police and the Home Office as a better alternative than a passport or biometrics residence permit (BRP) , which if lost, compromises your security and are very costly to replace.

Please note that Validate cards are used as proof of age in the UK. They are not a substitute for a BRP card. You cannot use Validate UK ID cards for travel
