Sorry but I believe the requirements are that you must have government issued ID not just some high school "gocard" bullshit. However with a Carecard and birth cert you should be able to get a BCID and/or Class 7/8 BCDL and then get verified. I know it can be a bit of running around (hell it took me a month to meet with a verifier because of conflicting schedules) but it's definitely worth it even if you don't buy from the classifieds as it shows you went through the trouble to get verified and you're 18+ so you usually get treated with a bit more respect (however unverified members get treated with respect if they type in proper sentences and actually read the FAQ section).
Also if you're fit and have a large skill base and framework of skills from boxing why not try MMA?
