    Basically one of my friends at school got her purse stolen yesterday and this had her provisional licence in it, which proves a bit of a problem as her test is tomorrow at 10.44. Is there anything she can do in this situation?

    Thanks again guys, any replies and shell be sooo greatful!

    I have bad news, according to here:

    http://www.dsa.gov.uk/Category.asp?cat=101

    She has to rearrange her test and apply for a new licence

    I thought the counterpart and and other suitable form of photo ID would suffice. Can't be sure tho, check the back of all the documents it says on there.

    edit no actually, doesnt look like it

    I lost my provisional as well the day before my test. Get her to phone the DVLA tomorrow morning (they open at 8am or 7am i believe) and they'll fax proof that she has a licence to the test centre. They'll only do this once though so if she fails she'll need to get a new provisional. She'll also need to bring some photo ID with her such as a passport.

    I've got no problems with women drivers, sure some of them do 30mph in a 60 and some insist they can reverse park, but long as you stay out of the way i don't see a problem ;)

    No really women drivers are great, just not as great as us blokes :)

    Although a current case in point is the woman who was at court for driving with no hands on the steering wheel, whilst applying make up... Which she said was a "blonde moment" and was then in court again a week later for DD.

    Did she crash? no well then not really much against woman drivers

    whereas mens insurance is higher than females, showing men have bigger and worse crashes than females
