Document certification

If you need a copy made of an original document, we can produce a photocopy and certify it as true. 

This could be any document which needs to be sent to an organisation for official purposes, such as:

  • Council tax bills
  • Bank statements
  • Passports*
  • Driving licences*
  • Utility bills
  • Other documents that may be required for things like probate, mortgage applications or anything else official.

This is a ‘drop in’ service, available at any of our Register Offices. There is no need to make an appointment.


This service is charged at £7 per document (up to 10 pages).

The fee will  be charged again for every subsequent 10 pages of the document, or part thereof.


*We are not able to certify the reverse of identity photos for photocard driving licences, or passport applications, as the person signing the reverse of the photo must be known for at least two years.

We cannot guarantee any other organisation will accept copies of documents certified by us. It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure the copies produced will be accepted.
