16-18 Year Olds - Please download and complete the following forms (links below):

  • NVB1 (NOTE - pls insert Parent's/Guardian's email address on this form - all other information should be the Applicant's own)

  • NVB3 (to be completed by parent/guardian)

  • Proof of identity(POI)* is required for both Applicant and Parent/Guardian

* Proof of Identity(POI)

At least two forms of identification (originals) must be produced to validate the identity of the applicant when completing the application. One of these should be photographic where possible. There is a points system for the verification of identity where 100 points must be reached. Different forms of identification are weighted with a sliding scale of points (see checklist below). Where an individual cannot reach 100 points an affidavit witnessed by a Commissioner for Oaths will suffice. The identity is verified locally by the Principal and copies of identity are retained locally.
