Additional photo ID - quietly going mad ...
Passport office (in London) not answering the phone, e-mail enquiry limited to 250 characters (WTF???) so hoping you good people can help.
DaughterNo.2 has just turned 18. Was previously named on my passport (and her mothers') until those were renewed several years ago, and due to a family break-up was issued with a UK passport in the meantime. She uses this for travel all the time, so can't be without it for a month or two while her application is processed.
Unfortunately, she has no other photo ID, other than a rail card that she also uses all the time and has a "social media" type photo on it, and a few DIY-style crappy laminated badges from previous volunteer work. She doesn't drive, none of her leisure activities require photo id cards, and she's on a gap year so has no student ID.
She can't be the only child-turned-adult with no other photo ID; how have others got around this problem?
