StartSSL asking for copy of passport and driving license

Hi,
I am looking to use SSL certificates for the first time. I have many sites hosted on my server and have set up with StartSSL.
I have a class 1 certificate which allows one site, however I want this for many of my sites so need to a class 2 certificate. However they ask for a copy of passport and driving licience. I can appreciate for security they may want this, however I am obviously a little cautious.

I have done a bit of research which while nothing damning, there is nothing that say yes they are 100% trusted.

Has any one got experience of Start SSL or other certificate providers where this type of authentication is required.

I don't realy want to go to another provider but would like to get some feedback befor committing as they seem to be a bit more cost effective than other providers.

Cheers
