I've registered for a personal tax account however there is an issue with proving my ID. Despite several ways being listed, only 2 options are provided, Passport and Photo driving licence. Due to a malignant brain tumour, I am not allowed to drive, and I have no use for a passport, so how do I prove who I am?

I've been having similar issues, have a driving license but no passport, however, when I attempted to verify myself 2 days ago there was the option to answer questions from your credit report. Would appear they've removed that option so I'm stuck.

Hi Paul Lang

If you are not provided with other options outside of passport and driving licence, you will not be able to verify.

thank you.

Which is utterly ridiculous. A malignant brain tumour prevents me from holding a driving licence. Therefore this is discrimination against those with an illness or disability (such as blind/partially sighted). How backwards this country is, a government department that discriminates against UK citizens! According to the NHS that is at minimum 2 million people you are discriminating against just on sight-loss. There's 600,000 people who have epilepsy, many of whom are not seizure free and therefore also are unable to hold a UK driving licence. Totally disgraceful.
