Applied today after getting my police certificate, only problem is I have just noticed I have omitted one digit off my driving licence! hopefully it wont matter too much :-(
From the FAQ:

I have submitted my application for review. How do I correct a mistake?
You will not be able to make any changes while your application is being processed. If you need to make a correction, you can do it at the time of the interview.

I doubt an honest error like that will go against you.

Interesting how the timings have increased so rapidly, from people applying in mid-August to those a week or so later. The turnaround time seems to have gone from roughly a week to almost 4 weeks

Well historically it was hard to get a code to apply, I guess the summer combined with 'Larry codes' has increased demand!

Not many UK people got a turnaround in a week, but its certainly slowed.

My main concern is lack of availability for appointments - I'd rather not book a trip especially for this!

Indeed that's my concern too - application is in though so will just need to hope for being able to get an appointment at one of the four airports with GE interview capability that I'm passing through on the trip!

The unfortunate irony for me is I would have got mine in at that earlier stage, if only I hadn't been in the US and unable to apply for a certificate!

my timelines so far:
Applied for the police certificate - 6th Sep (standard service)
ACPO Acknowledged receipt - 16th Sep
Submitted GE application 16th Sep and am still pending review.
Received actual paper certificate - 18th September

Post numbers would be more useful then page numbers, as we're not all using the same page length.

That's confidence for you ... I've no idea how many codes are actually available given this is still a limited trial, but - given most of the UK Flyertalk population seems to have been e-mailing Larry - I'm not sure I'd have been brave enough to pay for the cert before knowing whether or not it was actually going to be any use to me!

[EDIT] Conditional Approval Notification - Tues 29 Oct

[EDIT 2] Had my meeting on 2 December at JFK. Once I found the office it was a very quick process. [END EDIT 2]

I only hope that I can manage an interview in downtown Manhattan when I'm over there at the end of November.

If you mean the Amex office, then it's only open once a month it seems.
