The DVLA sent me a form for my provisional license as I didn't have an in date passport, but I made the mistake of writing my own name and details in the section where a second, non related person is supposed to provide their own details. How can I correct this mistake? Can I just cover it with a slip of paper or use correction fluid for example?

No, you need to redo the form again, the DVLA will not accept any documents that have been corrected with correction fluid. Plus with the roughly 3 month wait, why risk waiting 3 months for the form just to be sent back

Yes in your original form there should be your name and application number so they know that its had yours. You can even track your form.

No you won't have to pay again. Just send a letter detailing your mistake, the new form and the original form all in one post
