Are there any other ways to proove your over 18?

Couple of sites blocked to me, they were gambling sites.  Love PAYG deal, I need to get 18+ unlock for internet.  Sadly I only got expired passport and provisinal UK driving license both expired about a year or two ago.  I can go to local shop and buy 18+ restricted product even through self service they just know I am over 18... well 41 is older than 18 lol!

@AztecUK 

Go in store with any ID and they will call customer service for you to lift restriction.

The only other way is to call or try live chat when available.
