    you have to use the legal name on your driving license, if it makes you very unhappy have you considered changing your name?

    For official documents always put down your real name.
    They use your passport photo and it will be flagged up if the names aren't the same.

    No, you have to amend your name on every document that has your name on it since the beginning of your existence.

    The instructor and examiner won't care what your name is, you won't get any unwanted attention for it.

    If you really hate it a little bit of effort shouldn’t put you off..
    it’s quite easy, fill in deedpoll, get it signed in front of 2 witnesses, send a copy to the passport agency, pay the fee for a new passport, and then show it to anywhere else necessary. A few only take original copies so you might want to order a few from the site, but they’ll send it back once the records are changed. Check the websites for banks and things, some might want an enrolled deedpoll which means it needs to be signed by a solicitor which is very straightforward but will have a small fee anywhere from £10-75.
