I'm about to apply for my first provisional licence and needed some help figuring out who can be my counter-signature. I don't have a passport so that rules out using that, and since the form is a paper one that they send you in the post it does limit my options because of corona & not being able to see many people. My friend works as a carer and has a valid license and so was wondering if that would be suitable?

Also can anybody explain the process? It says on the website that the people who counter-sign will be contacted - my friend obviously works busy shifts as a carer so I wouldn't want it to interfere with anything like that.

Thanks!!

They don't need to be in any specific profession. As long as they meet the other criteria, all is well.

I've been a countersignatory quite a few times - not once have I been contacted by DVLA.
