My Dad is having his SG renewed and the FEO called to book a time to visit etc.
whilst on the phone he asked to talk to me (SG & FAC holder) he asked me when my licence expires.
to which i told him 2018
He then mentioned thats fine, if its was in the next 8 months he would do a check at the same time so when mine expires ( if it was within 8 months) he can issue a renewal straight away on the renewal date with no waiting.. If the visit went Ok obviously.
first time I've heard this and thought if people on here are close to there expire date, possibly phone your FEO and ask for a visit so when the time comes around it could take less time to issue a renewal?
just a thought.
