Genuine or Fake ?


All CitizenCards contain the PASS (Proof of Age Standards Scheme) hologram and are accepted as valid ID by UK retailers. It is straightforward to check that the card presented is a genuine card.

The New CitizenCard (18+ only)

The card is completely smooth and displays the logos of the Police, Trading Standards and the Security Industry.

1. The PASS hologram signifies that the card is a genuine UK Government-recognised photo ID/proof of age card.  It is endorsed as valid ID by the police, trading standards and security industry whose logos appear on the card.

2. The colour photo will confirm whether the person presenting the card is the lawful cardholder. 

3. The age band (18+) confirms immediately that the cardholder is an adult.  So, unlike driving licences, there’s no need to calculate if the cardholder is 17 or 18 from their DoB.

4. The New CitizenCard displays a UV (ultraviolet) marking in the form of the PASS logo which runs right across the card.  The UV marks can be seen with our UV torch.

5. 18+ cardholders also benefit from our Lealta discount offers.

The Classic CitizenCard (under-18s)

A completely smooth holographic overlay covers the entire card. Both sides of the card are UV-marked '100% Proof'.

3. The age band (Under 12; 12-15; 16-17) confirms immediately if the cardholder is the right age. 

4. Classic cards display UV (ultraviolet) markings in the form of two ‘100% Proof’ logos on both sides of the card. The UV marks can be seen with our UV torch.

5. The LEALTA logo enables cardholders to obtain CitizenCard Discounts (also available to 18+ cardholders).
