'Document Certification Service

Applying for a mortgage, job or bank account? Get your identity documents checked and verified at the Post Office.

If you’re providing photocopies to the recipient company, you’ll need to ensure that these are like-for-like with the originals. We’ll check up to three original documents against the photocopies and certify that each is a true likeness.

Get your documents checked and certified in three easy steps:
1 Decide which documents need checking. Once you’re ready, download and complete the Post Office ID Checking Service form (PDF, 371.13KB).
2 Bring this form, the £7.15 fee (we can’t accept cheques), your original documents and clear and legible photocopies in to the Post Office. Find the nearest branch that offers the service.
3 We’ll perform a check, and certify that each photocopy is a true likeness of the original. And that’s it – we’ll give you back all your documents and your form, plus a receipt.
