    Is that a joke the comment by Hampshire police, they are five months behind at the moment, there can,t be anybody worse surely.

    hi lads, Not worse than Hampshire but. My certificate was due for renewal in February. I received the paperwork last October with a note saying that Thames Valley required 60 working days (two and a half months) notice if I was to have it completed in time.

    Here in Northern Ireland it was taking 12 to 24 months to process a certificate. BASC put some pressure on them and I believe this has improved significantly and for a while I was hearing of reasonable times but I'm starting to hear a few people talking of 5 - 6 months again.

    +1 I had problems with Cheshire over conditions even though i had open Certificate it took six months for George Wallace to fight my corner but the outcome was in my favour. As you say BASC did nothing to help only point me in the direction of pragraphs in the Home Office Guidance which i already had a copy and had read myself.

    I sent mine off on friday 10th Aug 1st class recorded, arrived back on my door mat wednesday, im with Hampshire and can't fault their service so far...... maybe im just lucky!

    Edit: I did enclose a quote from my FAO saying this was needed back asap, might be worth having a chat to yours and seeing if they can assist.

    Having spoke to them on occasions, and been informed that they only started looking at Aprils mail at the beginning of August I shall ring today and quote what your experience was and ask why everyone else is being kept waiting.
    mine was sent on the 4 April renewal date was June and I have spoken to them twice by phone and been refused a temporary licence as quote it takes as long to do as a normal licence

    I didn't have any problems with Cheshire FLD at all in 2011. My renewal was in on time and the new certificates were back bang on expiry date of the old cert. Took 3 weeks for the turnaround.
    Best it's ever been, no hassle at all.
