Will ryanair accept a provisional license as proof of ID?

Has anyone used a provisional license to fly on Ryanair to Ireland?

Its for my cousin who will be flying from London to Shannon.

He has spoken to Ryanair and they said its ok - Could he request confirmation of this in writing?

Because everyone must have experienced - Someone says something while the other says different.

Google is no use on this one give me conflicting answers

ok...sorry guess every day is a learning day

do provisional licences have photos on them? if they do I reckon they are fine-if no photo it wont be accepted. ryanair only accept photo id.

I think it needs a photo of him on it.

Thanks for the quick responses and yes has a photo in his provisional license.

not sure if provisionals in england have a paper part-but if so make sure they have all parts of the provisonal license!
mb-yea just need proof of id on the planes between here and "the mainland"...ive personally used the boat between holyhead and dublin LOADS of times and only needed id once(the time i was taken to a back room and all my stuff went through and me searched "randomly"...grrrr)

has to be a passport now............had friends recently on a stag wkend with easyjet who flew to cardiff using their drivers licences then werent allowed to fly back because they didnt have their passports - go figure...............that might only be with easyjet though - but better safe than sorry

I might be wrong, but Ireland isn't part of the UK so do you not still need a passport to go there? I'd phone up again and check if I were you...

Both me and my Cousin have called them

My cousin spoke to them twice and they all said you can travel on a Provisional aslong as you use the airport check in option.
