    My provisional license was stolen.
    I have contacted DVLA and it is blocked so people can't use it for the police or in court they have told me.

    But I'm just wondering, what can happen now? Can they use it for anything? Is it likely that they will? Has anyone else been in this situation before?

    I highly doubt as your information is on there and it would be pretty hard for someone to imitate you unless they somehow look exactly like you, so I wouldn't really worry all that much.

    I lost my drivers license in a club earlier this year and didn't really care. The photo looks nothing like me and it has my parents address on it, I haven't lived there for 6 years. What use is that to anyone?

    It has my old address on it, and my date of birth. Also the photo is black and white and isn't very clear so someone can use it.

    If you've contacted DVLA about it then I wouldn't honestly worry. If you need more reassurance, you could possibly call them back.
