I have a digital passport and have wrote in the number for it and signed saying the DVLA can get my info off the IPS. However, in terms of countersigning, does the photograph need to be counter signed? The official rules state.

"If you’re providing identity documents other than an up-to-date passport, UK travel document or an EC/EEA identity card (apart from Sweden), you must get someone reliable to sign the back of your photo."

Does this mean because I have wrote my passport number in, they don't need someone to counter sign the photo?

Or does it mean that they'll use the photo from the IPS and won't use the one I provided. This is so confusing. :/

You don't need it counter signed if you give the passport details as proof of ID, but I think the DVLA will just use the passport photo if it's digital anyway.

Ah right ok, thing is though, I've changed since then, and I do want to provide another photograph, would that have to be countersigned?
