Proof of Age London (PAL) card

If you're aged between 16 and 25 and living or studying in Southwark, you can apply for a free Proof of Age London (PAL) card. If you're living or studying outside Southwark, there will be a £10 fee.

You can use your PAL card:

  • for proof of age (in bars/clubs and buying age restricted items)
  • for discounts in stores and attractions around Southwark
  • as a Southwark library card (for all services)

The PAL card is Proof of Age Standards Scheme (PASS) approved and is ID scan compatible. It should be accepted anywhere in the UK where age verification is required.

Another bonus is we promise not to sell on your personal data - unlike some other card providers. This means you won't be bombarded with spam emails, unwanted texts or junk mail just because you have our card.

Don't risk losing your passport! Take a PAL instead

We're encouraging many local schools, colleges and universities to issue these cards and have annual sign-up sessions.
