ID Testing Services
The service is very simple and effective.
Serve Legal visitors:
Visit any site in the UK & Ireland, often within 24 hours
Enter a site and purchase an age-restricted item (e.g. alcohol or cigarettes)
Record key information about the transaction including whether ID was requested, a description of the server, a till receipt (if provided), plus some other key facts
Always complete audit visits to the required specification and deadline
Our ID test visitors are all young-looking 18 or 19 year olds. They should be asked to provide ID to complete the transaction - particularly if you operate a Think 21 / Think 25 policy. Visitors only use passports, photocard driving licences or other PASS accredited IDs.
✓ If our visitor is required to provide official ID to complete the transaction, the site PASSES
✗ If they purchase the items without showing ID, the site FAILS.
Speed of reporting is essential. Within 24 hours of the visit, the visitor completes their report. Within 48 hours, the report is checked and sent to the named client contact.
