Most dive centers have the ability to check your creds, along with photo id. Normally the Dive center will log into Padi Professional Site, and then be able to check your Name, DOB and Photo to clear you for diving.

The problem comes with the Experience you have had. Some places need to see that you have completed a certain amount of Dives in a certain situation (I.E night, Boat, Drift, Wreck) regardless of your Qualification, purely for their insurance or protection.

I would call the Dive Center and explain the situation to them.

And a tip is to KEEP THE LOG BOOK SAFE!!!

Good luck!
