    Usually not.

    They should accept a recent utility bill, council tax bill or letter from an official government body such as DWP.

    well the DVLA are an official government body are they not? I have a letter from HM revenue & customs as well, surely that's good enough.

    Yeah, you would think so, but in all the years I've ever had to prove my address, my driving licence has not been suffice. I believe it's because it has to be dated within the last 3 months, just to prove you still live there; although it is an offence to have your address out of date on your licence.

    Some can give them over the counter. If you bank with barclays you can print from their machines.
    Good luck for tomorrow though :-)
