Words You May Need To Know


Proof – something which shows or helps to show that a fact or something is correct

Standard – here, an agreed level which something needs to reach

Accreditation – official recognition

Scheme – an organised programme or policy

Hologram – here, a special security mark

There is a Proof of Age Standards Scheme (PASS), which is a national proof of age accreditation scheme. A young person should make sure that any proof of age card s/he obtains is accredited under the scheme and can, therefore, be relied upon.


If it is accredited, it will have the PASS hologram. 


It should also bear the young person's full name, date of birth, a passport standard photograph and an image of the holder's signature.


A young person wanting to obtain a proof of age card should look at the PASS website for more information.
