ID card provider CitizenCard has marked the issue of its two millionth card, which went to 18-year-old Adrian Edwards, with a survey of its cardholders. 

It found that  77% of 16-21 year olds are asked for their ID between one and four times a week and that 67% of the age group are most frequently asked for ID when buying alcohol. Only just over half (52%) were most frequently asked for ID when getting into clubs. and 43% of cardholders were most often asked for proof of age in supermarkets.  

Andrew Chevis, CEO of CitizenCard, said: “Although the government has scrapped national ID cards, CitizenCards, which feature the Government-approved PASS hologram, are available at no cost to the taxpayer.”
