you shouldn’t have to do it via post/paper.
i did mine all online then they send my actual license in the post.

maybe ring them if it won’t let you log in or create a new account with a different email address

For the record, you can only do it all online if you hold a valid UK passport.

I highly doubt that, as the photo can only be taken from a UK passport.

well, i mean i did 😂
i’ve had an irish passport all my life and i know for a fact i never applied for my provisional license on a form, i did it online.

maybe it’s because i didn’t use my passport photo as it was from when i was 13 and i wanted a more updated photo, so i got it taken in a booth.

idk 🤷🏼
but ik i did it online

So you had to get your photo countersigned, and you sent it in the form they posted out to you after your online application......

i assume so! i don’t know. it’s seems like you’re telling me so if you know better, let’s go with what you’re saying 😂

i don’t know and i don’t really care. i did it like 2-3 years ago so applying for my provisional license wasn’t something amazing and worth remembering this number of years later.

it’s got nothing to do with the original post anyway. if the OP can apply online, then let them do so 😄

DVLA have taken 9 weeks so far to issue a standard provisional license to one of my household, UK resident, British passport holder etc etc. They tried to blame applicant for late receipt of supporting documentation following an online application, even though their own date-stamp proves paperwork was received 5 days within their own deadline. Really shoddy to shift blame to applicant, in writing, when it was their own failure. Turns out, if you're submitting paperwork, it should actually be sent within 7 days of an online application rather than the 28 days they state, as they include their own processing time of 21 days within that 28 day timeframe, which of course, they don't tell applicants.

They can't do it online, hence why the form was sent out - it requires supporting documents and a countersigned photo to be sent along with it.
