    My passport had been expired for 2 years and 3 months when I applied for first adult passport and I needed one because I needed it to apply for provisional license and to apply for other things and I need a valid passport in general never know for emergency reasons

    I thought it will take 10 weeks or even longer I wouldn’t be prepared for months and months and months of wait but luckily the service was extremely quick timeline down below

    Application sent: 2nd August 4 30pm

    Application received: 2nd August 4 32pm

    Documents sent: 4th August 3 55pm with special guaranteed delivery which cost nearly £7

    Documents arrived 5th August at PO Box around 9 30am this is what Royal Mail tracking stated

    Documents received: 5th August 2 31pm this is what the Government website stated

    Bear in mind that 5th August is a Friday and that weekend is up ahead I don’t know if weekend affects passport services but anyway

    Passport approved: 17 Aug around 1 20pm

    Passport printed: 18 Aug around 6am

    Tracking details for passport sent on text around 7 05 am

    Passport arrived: 19 Aug around 10 30am

    The whole process took just 17 days and even then 15 days because I sent it later than I should have

    The passport was approved in just 12 days including 4 days of weekend

    Then they printed the passport within 17 hrs and delivered it within 30hrs

    This was the Bootle PO

    I think the service has now sped up for applicants who apply in August onwards
