( please be careful while signing the British passport, sign above the signature line in the middle of the page, please read instructions carefully)


For my LIUK test I used my driving licence as proof which has my married name, but British passport is only issued in the name given in the foreign passport used to apply. So, my naturalisation certificate and British passport is in my maiden name now.
Next step: I have to surrender Indian passport to get a surrender certificate as India doesn’t do dual nationality. All the best everyone.
