New proof of age card for Essex - Yoti-CitizenCard


You may be aware the County Council has stopped issuing students with the BITE proof of age card and reached an agreement with 'Yoti-CitizenCard' to offer a new and more widely recognised proof of age system. This is the CitizenCard:




CitizenCard can help students to:

  • prove their age to the bus driver so they can obtain the reduced fare they are entitled to under the bus company's terms and conditions
  • prove age when buying age-restricted goods
  • prove their age online (optional)

Students can apply for a FREE Yoti-CitizenCard through their school or college. Schools and Colleges can contact for information about how to issue cards.

For full details visit the Essex Highways website.

Schools and colleges may wish to take up the offer of a site visit from Citizencard in order to issue cards for groups of students, please see attached information detailing how to arrange this or contact
