    They need to satisfy the requirements in line with the law so it is up to them what they accept.

    For example, Ladbrokes accept Citizencard for ID when gambling whereas other bookmakers dont.

    ANY photo id with dob, picture, "pass" hollagram

    Student card most definately isn't accepted.

    Valid passport, valid photo-driving license and Portman Group\'Prove It' cards are acceptable forms of ID.

    Would you say a French drivers liscese is acceptable? Couldnt find it on their terms and cons.

    That simply isn't true, it has to be one of the approved types. Foreign (non-EU) driving licenses for example might not be accepted.

    They would be perfectly within their rights to turn it down but provided it was a modern EU photo DL it probably would be okay :thumbsup:

    If they are statisfied with your age/ID then the type is less of a issue

    Initally/Offically I would imagine it would be goverment recoginised ID, however it all depends on the cashier serving you and their take on your age and legitamacy (is that spelt correctly?) of your ID as its down to their discreation

    you can use this one if u want

    Fair point, apologies maddness, had misread and thought you meant any generic hologrammed photo-id.

    My friend moved from chile, her passport over there was handwritten! All she did was carefully rub out the DOB and change it. (she had a UK passport too)

    I'll give you the sack but you have to provide your own doorknobs

    it also so long as id looks genuine i believe as the individual cashier can be personally fined they have to be satisfied the id is yours
