Does anyone know what happens if you lose your driving test certificate, theory test certificate, driving license(provisional) and paper part of the license?

I stuffed the whole lot in an envelope ready to send off for my driving license, and Ive lost the envelope. So what happens now?

It always amazes me to see someone who registers a name like "imasillynarb" to report something stupid that they've done, and three weeks later they're still doing silly things.

Well done!

Contact your test centre, they only give you one copy and keep the other copy on file. Same with the theory test certificate also your theory test certificate number should be on the copy of your test certificate which your driving test centre should have on file. As for your Prov driving license ring up the DVLA about it. They will prob say there is no point reapplying for it as you are going to get it replaced with your full license. So first step contact the test centre if in doubt contact your driving instructor and ask them for advice I'm sure you are not the first person thats ever happened to.

You could phone up the number here and ask for advice

Also tip for anyone else getting their license. Pay to have the post office check done that way they check that your form is filled in right, you dont have to get anyone to sign the back of your photo because they verify it for you, you also dont have to send off your passport or whatever else it is you have as ID if you dont have a photocard and they give you a receipt for it. So if your application gets lost in the post at least you have verification that you sent it off. Its worth every penny.
