Your birth certificate is an important document. Not only does it register the date and time that you came into the world, you’ll need it for things like:
- Starting a new job
- Proof of age
- Applying for a passport
- Applying for a provisional driver’s licence
It's also one of the accepted proofs when applying for your Young Scot National Entitlement Card.
Can’t remember what safe place you put it? Lost it in a move? Don’t panic, Renfrewshire Council has a new easy online service where you can order and pay for a copy of your birth certificate and when it’s ready it will be posted to your door.
You can order it here
Please note there is a cost for requesting a copy of a certificate. Details are available on the website above.
