Please note that certificates are sent to you by second class post. If you wish for extra security in receiving your certificate in the post, we can offer a recorded delivery service for an extra £1. To request this service, please contact us.
Please allow 15 days for your certificate to be produced and sent out. If you require a certificate urgently, we will do our best to accommodate you as quickly as we can. However, we are unable to offer a same day service.
