VALIDATE UK ID Cards

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
