Can I get a card in the next age band e.g. I'm 17 but want an 18+ ID card?

If you apply online the age band for your UK ID card is automatically calculated based on your date of birth. If you require a higher age band CitizenCard this can be selected in the "Age Band" section of online application page. You must select the desired age band from the drop down menu.

If you apply using one of our paper forms and require an 18+ photo ID but you are still 17 years old when you apply you must attach a letter to your application requesting what age band you would like i.e. 18+ or 16-17.

If your birthday falls at the weekend your 16-17 or 18+ ID card will not be issued until the first working day after your 16th or 18th birthday, but we can issue a lower age band CitizenCard before then if you request it.

A Standard application takes 21 days to process from when we receive your application at our office (subject to verification) and we send your card to you by Royal Mail 2nd class post.

An Urgent application takes 1-2 working days to process from when we receive your application at our office (subject to verification) and we post your UK ID card by Special Delivery - the Royal Mail guarantees to deliver it before 1pm the next day.

If you are 17, CitizenCard will issue you with a 16-17 card if you have not requested an 18+ card to be sent to you the day before you turn 18. 18+ ID cards will not be issued to anyone under 18.

If you are 15, CitizenCard will issue you with a Under 16 card if you have not requested a 16-17 card to be sent to you the day before you turn 16. 16-17 cards will not be issued to anyone under 16.

Use our online application to apply for your CitizenCard.
