    My friend is getting his provisional, he didn't have a passport so DVLA sent a form to him to give his identity and obviously someone needs to counter-sign his photo. He wants to know if he can get a school year manager to sign it, or does it have to be a teacher?

    It would probably be ok (see below from the rules on who can countersign a passport) - but tbh I'd get it done by a teacher if he can - it'll minimise problems

    who can sign for a passport
    A countersignature must be a person who enjoys a good reputation in the community, possesses a current British passport and has credentials that can be checked, and who would have something to lose by wrongly countersigning an application. For logistical reasons it is not possible to provide a comprehensive list of all professions and organisations where persons holding a responsible position are acceptable to verify passport applications.

    While there is no qualification for a "person of similar standing" this may be interpreted in the widest sense, but it must always be borne in mind that a countersignature should normally be someone who:
    • has qualifications that can be checked; and,
    • it is believed will not risk a career or reputation by knowingly making an untrue statement in completing the countersigning section of an application form.
