Ok so I've just filled in an application to have my passport renewed online.

Just wondering that once they post my form back to me to sign and send back with my old passport, on average how long does it take for my passport to arrive?

Only because my sister's birthday is coming up and I look quite young so I won't be able to go out without my ID, so I'd like to know whether I should wait until after her birthday to send my passport off.

Thanks!

How long is it until your sister's birthday? I'm sure you can do something to make them send back your passport quicker. I think my passport came within like 4/5 days, i think my mum opted for it to be sent back quick though.. It does cost extra to get this done however.

There is no guaranteed time with the standard passport service. It normally takes up to three weeks, however if you use the Post Office Check And Send service it can shave about a week off the time. When I worked at the PO it was £8 for the service. It's pretty good - 1/3 of all passport applications have an error on them that requires the form to be filled in again so it's worth getting it checked. Main thing to remember is make sure you sign inside the box.
