Mitek ID Checks

  • All you need is a selfie and a valid UK driving license It's that easy - just use the camera on your phone or tablet, or a webcam. And don't worry, if you don't have a driving license there are other options.
  • Your data is secure Mitek uses an encrypted connection to keep your personal data secure and deletes all digital copies of your documents as soon as the identity check is done.

Two steps to confirm your ID


Take a selfie

Mitek will guide you through the steps to submit your proof of ID.

The first step is to take a 'liveness' selfie. You'll need to move your head following the instructions on screen and take a few photos using your camera.

Take a photo of your valid UK driving license

The next step is to take a photo of your valid UK driving license.

Just make sure your license hasn't expired, and the address on your license matches your current address which you're using for your application.

Don't worry, you can still apply online using Mitek - here's how:

If you don't have a driving license, or it's not valid (it's expired or the address on it doesn't match your current address), you can still complete the online application process with Mitek. As well as taking a 'liveness' selfie, here's what you'll need to photograph:

  • A valid UK passport
  • A proof of address document - this could be a recent utility bill or bank statement and must show your current address

We'll take around two business days to check your details. We'll then get back in touch to update you on your application, so look out for a text or email from us.
