Hello everyone. I turned 18 nearly 2 months ago - starting to get old now lol. I am yet to go out to a pub/club being 18+ years old. I am still at college (7th form-Year 13) and have my school I.D. but i dont have any other I.D. I dont have a drivers license, 18+ card, nothing just my school I.D.

If i was to go into a Pub an order a beer would my school I.D. be good enough? it doesnt expire till february 2009. It has a picture of me. my school, D.O.B etc etc.

Thanks for all your help :)

You must show a NZ Drivers Licence, 18+ Card or Passport AFAIK. I doubt you would find anywhere that would accept your student ID

You should be able to pick up an application form from any NZ Post shop.

As far as I know all they can ask for is ID for proof of age. They cannot ask for a Drivers License specificlly for ID (as it can only be asked for ID for driving specific things).

Thanks

Alcohol licensees will only accept ID where they can be confident of its authenticity. For that reason it is common practice (perhaps even law) that they accept only a New Zealand drivers license or 18+ card. For foreign travellers they would probably also accept a passport.

A student ID could be very easily forged as there would be no declaration or background checks when they are issued.

Correct.

They will accept passports (and firearms licenses Wink) regardless of where you're from.  It is common practice to accept only these particular forms of photo ID because of the supposed authenticity factor.  It's not law, but as you say later, other ID forms are easier to forge.

M_I_C_H_A_E_L - get an 18+ card.  Easy to carry and doesn't whack your wallet if you lose it...
