Expired in April. Managed to get an online booking date for March. The process is flawed in every way. Had to stand in the sun for half a day. What is going to happen when summer comes and it starts raining again?
Anyway, 6-8weeks was the initial waiting period. After 8 weeks I went back to go and collect only to be told to come back again after a week or two. Then started using the link online that is supposed to track your renewal.
After about 6months I decided to take the day off work to go and take a chance to see if my card was issued, even though the site still said its not ready.
