3 weeks is a long time. You sure they haven’t sent you your licence number? There’s a number on a licence that you can use for stuff like that. Contact the DVLA for it

I was told when I got the car my pass certificate would be enough as it had my drivers number on it. The examiner at the test centre said the same thing.

I’ve called the DVLA and they said some licenses may take up to 5 weeks

Use your test pass certificate, as this acts as your driving licence until your photocard shows up.

Yes.. your test pass certificate acts as your licence. What exactly are they needing the photocard for?

What a load of crap. Buy a car from elsewhere if that's their policy; there's no reason to require it.
