My first pictures weren’t high enough quality, I received an email right away asking for new pictures, and within minutes received an answer with passport picture attached that would work. Highly recommend! Thank you!
The UK Provisional Driving Licence gives you some sort of permission to drive on the UK roads (excluding motorways), whilst under the supervision of your driving instructor or another driver over the age of 21 who has held a full driving licence for a minimum of three years.
To apply for one you might need to submit some documents, among others a UK biometric passport photograph. To find out more, read on!
To correctly submit an application for a UK provisional driving licence you have to take the right UK passport-sized photograph. You can quickly generate a suitable image by using the photographic booths found in shopping and leisure areas or online. Use the Passport Photo Online website or app and have your photo ready in 3 seconds! Read the requirements first and find out how to use a simple and fast photo tool.
It is important to know that the photograph should be signed by someone suitable who has known you for at least two years (non-relative and not living at the same address as you). The suitable people are a local business person or shopkeeper, librarians, professionally qualified people, e.g. lawyers, teachers, or engineers, police officers, bank or building society staff, civil servants, ministers of religion, magistrates, local councillors, Members of Parliament, Assembly Members, Members of the Scottish Parliament, or Members of the European Parliament.
General demanding regarding provisional driving licence photos:
The dimensions of a provisional driving licence in the UK are 45mm x 35mm. In pixels should be at least 600 wide and 750 pixels high, but the recommended dimensions for the UK provisional driving licence application are 900 pixels wide and 1200 pixels high. The file size should be at least 50 KB and no more than 10 MB. Remember that the digital photos, as well as printed ones, should be of good quality and sharp.
The digital passport photo must be taken against a plain light grey or cream background so that the person in the picture is in clear contrast to the background. Make sure the lighting in the room is right and your face lit evenly. It is important to expose facial features, which matters for biometric photos. Be sure that the background is not textured and that there aren’t any objects visible in the background.
The positioning of the head, as well as the whole body in the driving licence photo, is very important. You have to stand straight for the camera and look directly into the lens. The head must be positioned straight – do not tilt it sideways! Also, half-profile photos are not accepted and will result in application rejection.
In the picture, your eyes have to be open and visible. Especially the colour of the iris must be able to recognize. Make sure that there’s no ‘red eye’ effect so we advise against using the flash lamp as it causes the red colour. Remember that hairs can’t cover your eyes, so if you're wearing a fringe make sure it doesn’t overlap your eyes.
Keep your facial expressions as neutral as possible. Smiling, showing teeth, frowning or grimacing is not allowed. The mouth must be closed and.
You cannot wear sunglasses or tinted glasses. Prescription glasses and other medical glasses are allowed as long as they do not reflect light and do not have any glare. Eyes with medical glasses must be fully visible.
There are no special guidelines for hairstyles on digital British passport photos. The hair may be tense or loose, but it must not cover the face. Even a small fragment of it. It is best to brush them backwards, but the ears needn’t be visible. Remember that the forehead and eyebrows should be visible, so don’t cover eyebrows with hair.
For the photo, you need to take off head covers such as hats, headbands, caps. However, religious head coverings are an exception. You can have them in your photo if you provide a certificate from your religious community. But again, the religious headgear must not cover the face.
