Need help proving my identity

This post was flagged by the community and is temporarily hidden.

Hey @AdamHunter I’ve just removed your birthdate from there!

You’ll need one of the listed photo IDs to apply for an account. If you don’t have one of these at the moment then you’ll be unable to sign up just now I’m afraid :pensive:

Hi Adam & welcome :wave:

The accepted forms of ID to open a Monzo account are as follows:

  • Passport
  • Driving licence (provisional is accepted)
  • National ID card
  • Biometric residence permit
  • Firearm or shotgun certificate
  • Electoral Identity Card issued by the Electoral Office for Northern Ireland

Without one of the above you won’t be able to open an account unfortunately. Time to plan learning to drive or travelling overseas possibly?


It costs £34 to apply for a provisional driver’s licence:

Regardless of anything to do with Monzo, over the next couple of years (leading up to 18), you’re going to find it more and more useful to have some kind of formal ID- no time like the present, in my view!

You beat me to it. I think a lot of people don’t know you can apply for a provisional driving licence when you’re 16. Seems the best option.
