Certificate processing times

Standard certificates are being despatched in around six to eight weeks from the time of application, based on demand.

If you need a certificate urgently, you should use our priority service. Most priority orders are posted within 48 hours, but this is not guaranteed.

You cannot apply for, or collect, a certificate in person. Orders can only be made online or by post. All orders will be sent using Royal Mail.

Check the current timescales for receiving certificates.
