Is a provisional driving license accepted in most pubs, clubs and supermarkets?

Apparently some places only accept a full driving license? but as far as I am aware it carries no additional checks you just send your provisional off to get a full license. Read More

When I tried to get a bank account none would accept it because I had it more than a year others said two years I went round them all finally the only one to accept it was lloyds bank. I asked why and none knew the reason.

I had an argument with an old lady that worked behind the bar in a working mans club before because she said it wasn't real ID! How is it not real ID when I sent my birth certificate away to apply for it?! She served me in the end :)

It's to easy to get fakes now. So I think they are stopping them for being ID, my current job wouldn't accept it for proof of my name and address

my work place says it has to full photo driving license, I wouldn't take a provisional, its the staff that gets fined if we sell to underage not the store, all stores reserve the right not to sell if they don't want.
does a provisional have a photo? the one I had ages ago did not.

Only trouble I could see there being is they keep changing the style and tweaking the layout of the driving license every few years which might cause a little confusion.
In the last ~10 years I've had 2 provisional and 2 full licenses and each time they have looked very noticeably different.

Having said that I get ID'd a lot and I've never had trouble using a driving license as ID. Supermarkets, pubs, betting shops and even airports (domestic flights) have all accepted them without question.

As long as it has a photo on it I don't see why it shouldn't be accepted??

I understand but the point still stands that you only need a provisional to get a full license. No additional checks are done!

Also, you need to pass a driving test to get a full license!

I am quite clearly referring to the Identity checks side of things here.
