Hi. I am just wondering if it would be possible to use my citizencard as ID. This displays a picture which would match up with video verification. It displays my name and date of birth.
I find it really unfair that this isn’t available already. Not everyone in the UK drives so doesn’t have a Driving licence
Not everyone can afford a passport let alone go abroad.
Also the UK do not have a national card anymore so why you can use that as ID instead of Citizencard ID is beyond me.
It even says on the back of the card
’ The UK home office, national police chiefs Council and the Security industry Authority recognise this card the bearing Proof Of Age Standards Scheme Hologram as a Valid Form Of ID.
I’ve never understood the Citizencard if you can get a drivers licence. I have never driven but always had a drivers licence for ID purposes. Lasts longer and is pretty much accepted anywhere (with a few exceptions). Also useful for proof of address as well. Win win.
