Lloyds Bank proof of identity

Proving your identity

We need you to prove your identity if you are a new customer opening a new account with us. Existing customers may also need to prove their identity when opening additional accounts.

What can you use to prove your identity?

In most cases you will only need to produce one of the following:

  • A current photo driving licence or passport from the United Kingdom.
  • A Northern Ireland Voters Card.

If you cannot provide one of the items above, you will need to bring two documents. One document from each of the following lists instead:
