In order to get a letter of recommendation, you should contact the person (or persons) who will be providing you the letter and request one in writing before submitting their name as a reference. You should not list someone as a recommender until that person has confirmed that they will be able to write one for you.
The recommended timeline for the request should be a few months in advance in order to allow the person time to write it without feeling overwhelmed.
