I applied for my provisional online, but did not have a UK passport so DVLA sent me a form to complete in the post. However, I think I have made a mistake in the signature and I don't want to wait another week for them to send through another copy - so I am wondering if I can cover it with a bit of paper or a plain white sticker or some correction tape or will my application be rejected?

just wait and see. you will soon learn that this country is full of stupid pen-pushers, so don't be surprised at all if the mistake gets ignored and you get your licence with no problem.

I did a proper signature (as in, it all squiggled, if you get what I mean) instead of just printing my name/surname. Do you think if I cover it up, it’ll get rejected?

That’s what you’re supposed to do in the signature box for a licence. It gets printed on to your licence.

If it’s wrong it will get rejected. Might as well just wait to see what happens.

I have pretty much a scribble on my driving licence. If it's your usual signature, then what's the problem?
