How likely is a provisional approval for an accreditation in a course to let you on the register? It's the first year they're teaching and I'm worried that I won't be added to the register yet it's the only one where I am able to apply to

Are you sure? It's freaking me out when it says this on their website "Whilst under provisional approval students recruited on to the programme are not guaranteed entry to the GOC Register and may be required to undertake additional assessments through an alternative GOC approved education provider in the event that any aspect of the programme when delivered does not satisfy the GOC standards. This is a standard process for all institutions offering optometry. No optometry student is guaranteed full registration until successfully completing a recognised qualification."

If it all goes badly and I don't get accredited, will I have to take another 3 year optometry degree or is it a few months to just do the parts which weren't accredited?

I'd go by whatever GOC have said on their website. They are saying it is approved.

Say hypothetically if it wasn't, you won't need to do another 3-year degree, it'll just be a few extra exams.

I'll take your word for it. Thank you very much.
