Why do I need a Citizen Card?

Citizen Card is the UK’s leading proof of age and photo ID card. We have issued more than 2.4 million Citizen Cards since 1999.


Using a Citizen Card is voluntary, but it can make life much easier.

Many organisations need to confirm your age or identity and having a Citizen Card allows you to prove this.

Even if you have a passport or photo driving licence, having a Citizen Card means you can leave these more valuable documents safely at home.

Using a Citizen Card you can access the products and services to which you are entitled.

You can use Citizen Card for:

  • home shopping (including purchasing alcohol and tobacco)
  • starting work or for a job interview
  • accessing housing services or claiming benefits
  • playing the lottery or buying scratchcards
  • renting a new home
  • purchasing videos (DVDs or Blu-Ray discs) and computer games
  • applying for a UK driving licence (as evidence of your identity)
  • visiting the bookies, bingo or casino
  • entry to nightclubs, bars and pubs
  • entry to festivals
  • travel and domestic flights (including British Overseas Territories like Channel Islands)
  • any other age-restricted entry or purchase
