    I'm not sure if I'm on the right thread so I apologise - basically last week I applied for my provisional driving licence online and paid the full amount but today I found my birth certificate and after reading it I realised I had a second middle name which I didn't add on my provisional licence application. I added my first name, middle name and last name without realising I had a second middle name. I was just wondering if this would cause a problem? I'm sending my national insurance and birth certificate today so just needed to know if it would be a problem, thanks for reading.

    Are all your names on your GCSE certificates? Sorry, an off topic comment but important.

    It ---probably--- wouldn't matter - they'll probably just add it to your licence, or leave it out.

    People assume names are really strict but in reality we live in a country where saying "I am no longer Tom, I am now John" is legal basis for a name change. Names aren't important.

    I don't see them rejecting the application.
