You don't need to send your passport in if it's biometric.


Straight from the Gov website:


You can use the 9-digit passport number for your driving licence application if you’ve got a valid UK biometric passport (where the photograph and signature are on the same page).

You won’t need to send your biometric passport in with your application.

Otherwise you’ll need to send in an original identity document.

There are different rules in Northern Ireland.

Other types of identification
You can send the following identity documents if you don’t have a biometric passport:

a current and valid passport
a biometric residence permit (BRP) - formerly known as the identity card for foreign nationals
a UK certificate of naturalisation
an European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) national identity card
a travel document
You must send the original document with your driving licence application.

You can’t use:

photocopies or laminated certificates
certified copies - including those certified by the Post Office document certification service
Don’t send in your passport if you need it within the next month - consider delaying your driving licence application until after you’ve travelled.



BIRTH CERTIFICATES

UK birth and adoption certificates

You can use a UK birth and adoption certificate, but you must send it with one of the following:

National Insurance card or a letter from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) showing your National Insurance number
photocopy of the front page of a benefits book or an original benefits claim letter
P45, P60 or pay slip
marriage certificate or divorce papers (decree nisi or absolute)
college or university union card, school record or PASS CitizenCard

They send the original back. Birth certificates only cost like £10 anyway though.
