Glasgow Young Scot Glasgow Kidz Card
Young person completing a GYSC application form

Important info about applying for a GYSC

Anyone aged 12 to 18, living or attending full time education within the Glasgow City Council boundary, can obtain the card free of charge! If you're aged 11 and attend secondary school you can also apply, with your parent's/guardian's consent.

To apply for the Glasgow Young Scot Card, you can download and print out the GYSC application form using the link on the right. You will require Adobe Acrobat Reader to access this form. This software can be freely downloaded from the Adobe website.

You can also ask for a pre-printed application form from your local library, leisure centre or school office.

Complete and sign the form on page 5 (if you're not yet 12, you'll need your parent's/guardian's signature).

The card acts as a voluntary proof of age ID, so the info on your form must be verified. Your application form must be accompanied by a passport sized photograph. The back of the photograph must be validated as described on pages 2 and 4 of the application form.  For more details about the Proof of Age Standard Scheme, see our section on PASS information & identity requirements.
