What identity documents do we accept for your identity check?

We accept the following documents to confirm your identity as part of your check: 

  • passport
  • EEA/Swiss National ID card, provided it clearly states your nationality, and has a machine-readable zone. If you’re unsure whether your card has a machine-readable zone, please contact us
  • UK driving licence.

We’ll need to see the original document with your name as it will appear on the register and your signature.

We cannot accept photocopies or documents that have expired, so please make sure your document is still valid.
