The card can offer the following benefits:
The PASS acronym stands for Proof of Age Standards Scheme and the holographic PASS logo on your Young Scot card means that the card works as proof of age.
You can use a PASS proof of age when buying age-restricted goods like lottery tickets, rated films or alcohol. For more information on PASS visit www.pass.scheme.org.ukBack To Top
