Proof of age ID card with TOTUM
Looking for an officially recognised UK proof of age ID card?
Look no further; TOTUM is now available with the added goodness of coming with PASS accredited legal ID when you buy a TOTUM card for £14.99! Now this is a student ID card worth having!
Endorsed by some heavyweight authorities, like the Home Office, Trading Standards, the Security Industry Authority (SIA) and the National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC), it means that when you carry your TOTUM + age ID card with you it confirms your name and age. So whether you're buying discounted tickets for the train to see your mates, catching the premiere of that horror film your fav actor is starring in, or using it to buy a round at the pub, your TOTUM + age ID card helps.
Having a TOTUM + ID card validates your name and age with your photo, we use either your passport or UK driving licence during the online, in-app sign-up process. Which means you don't need to take your passport or driving licence out with you if you're heading out for the day.
How many mates do you know that have lost their passport on a night out? Yep, with TOTUM + ID that ain't going to happen. Result.
TOTUM + age ID card uses PASS
PASS, which is short for Proof of Age Standards Scheme, is the name and recognisable logo of UK’s national proof of age accreditation scheme, endorsed by the Home Office, the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) and the Security Industry Authority (SIA). No other student ID card packs the same punch!
It is the most widely recognised and authentic proof of age scheme in the UK. More retailers and businesses know and understand what the PASS logo and hologram means than with any other ID scheme. It is the perfect photo ID to use!
What can you use TOTUM + ID card for?
The TOTUM + age ID card comes in two options, depending on how old you are.
Our 16-17 year old variety caters for college, school and sixth form students and probably the best benefit of having our card in your pocket is proving you're still entitled to discounted or free public transport. No full adult fares for you. Other benefits include, buying energy drinks in supermarkets, as most now prohibit the sale to under-16s, and only 16 plus can buy basic medication such as paracetamol and ibuprofen.
Our second variety is 18+, and you don't need a Phd to know, this proves you're over the age of eighteen. Which means you can use your TOTUM + age ID card to do some of this stuff:
Entry to pubs, clubs and bars
Take a domestic UK flight (including to British Overseas Territories like the Channel Islands)
Visit a prison
Buy PEGI 18 computer games
Watch an 18 rated film at the cinema
Get a tattoo inked
Start work or for a job interview
Buy medicine (16 year old +)
The physical plastic card contains your photo, your name, your date of birth and the official PASS hologram.
How to apply for a TOTUM + age ID card
We've worked hard to make it as easy as possible for you to apply. If you haven't already, download the TOTUM app to your smartphone, tap to join and make sure you select the +ID card bundle.
Once you've paid for your TOTUM membership, we'll swiftly take you through all you need to do to apply for the ID.
Just remember that you'll need an official document to hand (your passport or UK driving licence) as we'll ask you to take a photo of it using your phone and we'll need you to take or upload a passport-style photo of yourself - wearing no hats or glasses - and against a plain, pale background.
But there's no paper forms to fill in, no getting a referee to vouch for you, and no posting stuff. You can complete the application, via our app, in just a matter of minutes. And once you've successfully applied, we'll get on with producing and posting your new age ID card to your nominated postal address in 5 to 7 working days.
Please note: your proof of age ID card remains valid for the duration of your TOTUM membership, or until your eighteenth birthday if you have the 16-17 proof of age ID card.
Important to remember
Having your TOTUM + ID card doesn't mean that the door staff have to give you access to a pub or club, or that you'll get served at the bar.
Most UK retailers and pub chains do support PASS accredited cards but their staff still have the right to refuse to serve or admit people that they suspect of being too young.
