Proof of Age London (PAL) card

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

The PAL card is intended for anyone between the ages of 16 and 25 for use as proof of age in:

  • bars and clubs
  • cinemas
  • shops and other businesses selling age restricted products

If you live or study in Southwark, your PAL card can also be used to access our library services.

We're currently unable to process new applications, so please see our pages on other PASS approved cards to compare alternatives.
