    I'm not sure, but I lost my photocard provisional 2 weeks ago and applied for a new set at £22. It got to me (they send you both parts, paper and new photocard) and it got to me pretty quick (say 5 days I think?). You have to send back any original duplicates you have once you get the new ones though. So you'd have to send back your old photocard.

    Apply here for a new one :

    Theres no way you'll get a replacement by Wednesday, phone your DSA monday morning and ask if you can do it without the paper part

    If not, you'll have to cancel it (if you can) and re-arrange it

    You won't get it by Wednesday. the fastest way is to 'lose' the other part as well and apply for a replacement.

    Yeah the Paper part of the licence is pointless for the Theory IMO. They just have a quick look at it to see if it matches the details on the Prov. Card.

    If you have to apply for a replacement, you may as well "lose" the card part and get both parts at the same time. Therefore you'll have a spare photocard if you ever need one.

    I applied for a new one a couple of days ago as I actually have lost both parts of the old one over the last few months. :rolleyes:
