Hi, one of my friends has changed his d.o.b on his provisional driving liscence. The card is real and all the details on the card are correct but he has changed his d.o.b so he is now 18. Anyway it looks pretty gd but i want to know wot the consequences are if he gets caught using this, he will just be using it for getting served in bars and off liscences. Hes 17 and 18 in August.

Why doesn't he just wait a few months and purchase alcohol legally?

It's a legal document, so it's illegal to alter.

Nuff said.

The UK provisional driving licence is a offical government document, hes an idiot to mess with it, why doesnt he just buy a 'novelty' id of the internet or ebay ther elike £10 or something, changing your driving licence is like messing with your passport...

The worst they can do is take the id away. I don't believe there's actually a statute stating that you can't use fake id's.

I used to use my provisional to get into clubs/bars/buy booze etc when i was 17

the damn thing said i was 17

people just can't count... i do exactly the same thing now with my real one to get into over 21 bars (im 20)

tell your friend has a ######, but it dosent really matter cos of like a million to one chance of getting caugh...

you just gotta be confident, have a chat with the bouncer or something, bit of banter and if they ask for it just whip it out show them and they just alwasy used to let me in :D

how the hell did he manage that on a provisonal licence? you have to send off a solid ID like passport or something.

Sure it isn't just some fake id from a website?

well when you say he will get in deep **** what are you talking?

Would many pubs and of liscences report it to the police if caught do you think, or just throw it away?

yes im sure idbuythatforadollar that it is real, he has shown me how to do it, its simple really and definetely shows a major flaw in the current driving liscence cards.

i remember all the cards i took away when i worked at a bar... they tell u what to look for on altered/fake cards. his best bet is to borrow from someone who is legal and looks like him. i dont know what UK laws are but u could probably get in big trouble forging a document like that nowadays.

Haha - funnily enough that's exactly how I used to do it. Most bouncers have there heads shaved... I think the fact that their brains get cold may have something to do with the inability to do basic subtraction ;)
