Default Aus passport renewal in UK - Proof of identity query

Hi.
We're in the process of renewing both my daughter's Australian passports. They have citizenship through descent, so apart from holidays have never lived in Australia.
However, there is a 'Proof of Identity' section where they ask for either driving license or birth card details. We don't have either. So, is it OK to leave this section blank, or will it be an issue?

Thanks, P.

I'd echo the advice to phone and ask.

I had a similar issue when getting my Aus passport - I don't drive so had no licence. The Aus Post staff processing the application said that if I didn't have the ID required then I just needed to get another photograph certified instead. Seems that is in their copy of the rules and guidance, biut not in the public copy!!
