I Dont Have a Photo Card Driving Licence. What Can I Use for Photo Identity?
Examples of acceptable photographic ID are:
- Photocard Driving Licence (an expired photocard does NOT invalidate the licence)
- A valid passport
- An expired passport
- Formal ID Cards (armed forces, police, student union, company ID card)
- Tachograph Card
- Local Authority/Taxi ID
- Blue Badge (parking for people with disabilities)
- Firearms Certificate/Shotgun Licence
Any identification produced that does NOT contain photo identity (eg utility bills, birth/marriage certificates) must not be accepted and the client will be referred back to the police.
Courses with On Road Elements
A photocard driving licence will be necessary (or paper licence with other photo ID – see list above) where the client is expected to undertake a on road element to a course and it is expected the police will ascertain the client held a valid driving licence at the time of the alleged offence.
