I sent my driving application form with my passport on 18th of October. I just put first class stamp in the mail and dropped it off in the post box. The DVLA still haven't received my application. I am a bit worried as I mainly care about my passport being lost. I contacted the DVLA last week and said they haven’t received any mail from me.

At the End of the day it is still my fault as I should’ve sent the mail more securely by signing and tracking it.
Is there any way for me to get hold of the mail because i don't want to apply for a new passport?

get in touch with royal mail, sometimes theyre able to track it down, if not they may be able to compensate you for items lost (im assuming passport?) but it will depend on the value to which the item was insured up to (they'll only pay out so much depending on how you posted it) https://www.royalmail.com/personal/uk-delivery/1st-class-mail im assuming theyll only pay out up to £20 if they cant locate it, and then you would have to apply for a new passport.

Just wait another few weeks. DVLA have a long backlog all year round.
