Hi

I need this help on this.

I'm getting my name changed as I've spelt my parents spelt my name wrong throughout my whole life and so my bank and passport name matches for student finance (currently the surname and middle name is spelt different).

But my main problem with this is I passed my theory test last august and if I change my name then my name and licence no. will be different to my theory certificate. And I've been advised to wait till after I pass my test which I can't as I have to send student finance off by 31st May.

So does that mean I have to re-take my theory test as I highly doubt I'll be able to pass it again and I've already ready taken my practical twice and failed so I won't be passing that in the next month.

Is there any way round this without me having to take my theory test again?

Nope, just contact the DVLA with details of your name change.

I imagine if your passport changes as well, that will be proof of ID.
