Hi there. I’m wondering whether it would be possible for someone (my mum) to open a Monzo account without photo ID? She doesn’t have a passport, and she’s never had to upgrade her car license to a photo one. I think Monzo could really help her. Thank you.
Hello, no you will have to have some form of Photo ID ( Passport, driving license or EU ID Card). Hope that helps.
It’s needed I’m afraid. Costs about £20 to convert paper to photo driving license I believe.
Thank you. Might have to get her to update her license!
If you google ‘accepted forms of ID for a Monzo account’ you get the below article.
This lists all the accepted types which should help with deciding on which one is best
Guessing firearm or shotgun certificate will be best.
I had to convince my mum to do this recently. It was becoming more and more of a hindrance with so many places now requiring photo ID. It cost £20 and was surprisingly quick and painless.
