Do I need a passport to apply for a provisional licence?

Sorry I really couldn't find another thread to put this in.

Ive had my provisional for 10 years, obviously it's came up for renewal I haven't learnt to drive yet but I was planning to this year.

The only documents it allows for ID is a passport - I don't have a passport! I probably last had one about 15years ago maybe - I managed to get my provisional in the first place somehow maybe with the passport or maybe the rules were different back then.

Anyway. Do I really need to first apply for a passport, spend £80 odd quid when I really don't need it - I've managed this far without one - to then get a provisional? Is there really no other way possible to get it without a passport?
