So I applied for my provisional license, received a document asking for a passport, sent the passport photo and have been waiting for quite a while now. Recently I learnt you can track the progress so I did that and all it says is,
'In Progress: Awaiting Application Return Form'
So does that mean they didn't receive the photos?

How long have you been waiting? I’ve seen a couple of threads on here saying it takes around 4 weeks after you send back the form with the photo

You could always ring them and ask for an update

I think I sent mine back in the first week back too, I guess there will just be a massive backlog as there won’t be as many people in the office

No, I called a few times and strangely the calls wouldn't even go through! I assumed it was due to lots of people calling at once so I decided to wait and ended up kind of forgetting about it... The tracking doesn't say rejected or anything so I'm still hoping for the best hehe.

Hahaha cant think of a better way to describe it. Honestly, the first phone call actually went through but for some reason, it started talking about completely unrelated things so I thought maybe I pressed the wrong number and hung up. None of my calls went through after that ;-;
