Get your identity document copies certified at the Post Office
If you have been asked to supply certified copies of your original documents, POL can certify that the copies presented/produced are a true likeness of the original document/s.
If you’re providing photocopies to the recipient company, you’ll need to ensure that these are like-for-like with the originals. We’ll check up to three original documents against the photocopies and certify that each is a true likeness.
Which documents can I get checked?
- Driving licences
- Recent utility bills
- Bank statements
How it works
Get your photocopies certified in three easy steps:
- Decide which documents need checking. Once you’re ready, download and complete the Post Office ID Checking Service form (PDF, 74KB).
- Bring this form, the £8.75 fee in cash (sorry, we can’t accept cheques for this service), your original documents and clear and legible photocopies in to the Post Office. To find the nearest branch that offers the service, use our Branch Finder.
- We’ll perform a check, and certify that each photocopy is a true likeness of the original.
- That’s it – we’ll give you back all your documents and your form, plus a receipt.
