Will I automatically be sent new application forms when my certificate expires?

With effect from October 2013, renewal application forms are no longer being sent automatically to licence holders three months prior to expiry. You will still receive a reminder letter though.

With effect from October 2013, renewal application forms are no longer being sent automatically to licence holders three months prior to expiry. You will still receive a "renewal due letter" which contains guidance as how to proceed in submitting an application. We will also be sending out "renewal reminder letters" four weeks prior to expiry. This slight change in service is also required due to ongoing cuts in government grant funding to the police service as prescribed in spending reviews.
