You have just learned what types of ID are acceptable and some helpful carding tips. The quality of today’s altered, borrowed and counterfeit IDs makes it imperative for you not only to card guests, but be able to prove that you did. You are 100 percent responsible for the minors that are served.
Proof of carding is one of the most important duties licensees and employees should do. Each and every time you card a patron, you should be able to prove that you did. Whether you question the ID or not, this practice, done correctly, can greatly reduce liability.
If licensees wish to defend himself or herself against a sales-to-minors charge, he/she must be able to provide that:
- The minor was required to produce a valid form of identification as defined by the Liquor Code
- One of the following forms of documentation was used: Declaration of Age Card, photograph, photocopy, transaction scan device or video presentation of the ID presented
- The above documents were relied upon in “good faith.”
