Applying for ukfp 2024/provisional license

I recently gave up/stopped the timer for my provisional license. I’m planning on applying for the ukfp 2024 this year. Do I need to reclaim my provisional license first, to apply for eligibility for ukfp this summer or can I wait until next year when I actually start working (having passed the application process for ukfp 2024)?

Hey bro was your application accepted this time by UKFPO for the 2024 session??
