    Volunteer is not listed on the government website. The DVLA will contact the person signing the licence. To be sure, you need to check with the DVLA first otherwise there may be a delay in receiving your licence:

    Just tagging AngryJellyfish to get this moved to Cars and motoring.

    Also tagging IWMTom, as he's far more knowledgable about the DVLA applications than me.

    The job that they do is irrelevant for a driving licence application - it's not as strict as a passport application, where the counter-signatory must be of a certain profession. uberteknik has linked the Government guidance, but for reference, your counter-signatory must:
    • hold a valid GB photocard driving licence
    • be resident in the UK
    • know you personally
    • not be a relative
    • not be living at the same address as you

    The professions you see listed are only examples of people you can use.

    Very rarely.
