Proof of Age

No PASS no Sale

Proof of Age Standard Scheme (PASS) is the UK's national guarantee for proof of age cards and is backed by the Home Office, the Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland, the Security Industry Authority and the Trading Standards Institute. The scheme delivers a common standard - the PASS hologram which is an easily recognisable logo to help protect retailers of age restricted goods against being taken in by the many fake cards around.

Increasingly tough enforcement of legislation to prevent selling to under 18s means that there is pressure on retailers and licensees to refuse sales or entry if there is any reason to believe that the person is under age.

Whether you are 18 and want to buy a drink at a pub or you are 15 and want to buy tickets at a cinema, you may find it useful to be able to prove your age without having to carry a passport or driving licence around with you.

The Accord/Young Persons Entitlement Card is PASS accredited and is available to young people between 11 and 26 years that reside in Aberdeen City. Most young people will be issued with an Accord Card once they move up to secondary school.

If you attend one of the councils 12 secondary schools and haven't received your Accord Card yet speak to your Accord Administrator in the school office about applying for an Accord Card. If you attend any other school or have left school and wish to have an Accord Card for proof of Age (PASS hologram) then you can apply for one at one of the following locations:

  • Customer Service Centre, Marischal College, Broad Street 
  • Mastrick Customer Access Point
  • Kincorth Customer Access Point
  • Woodside Customer Access Point
