Need to prove your identity?

If you've been asked to provide proof of your identity as part of an application process, selected Post Office branches can provide these face-to-face checks for you.

You keep your original documents. We send the results of the checks to the organisation who requested them.

We're able to check a range of documents including:

  • Passport

  • Driving licence

  • Recent utility bills

  • Bank statements
