Why do I need a CitizenCard?
Posted by CitizenCard on 13 August 2021 04:31 PM

CitizenCard is the UK's leading proof of age and photo ID card. We have issued more than 2.4 million CitizenCards since 1999.

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

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

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

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

You can use CitizenCard 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
