I put my application on hold a year ago. Do I have to re-apply & start again or can I carry on where I left off?


Hi, I was just wondering because I’d put my application on hold a year ago, do I now have to start again or carry on where I left off? TIA

Which stage of the application process had you reached when you asked for it to be put on hold?

What was the reason behind your need to put it on hold? (I'm asking as it might have a bearing on what happens next).


I got to the fitness test stage.
So passed the psychometric test, medical and on my online portal I only had the fitness test to do a security clearance then the PJFT.

reason for putting on hold was life just got busy my priorities weren’t in the right place and the navy should have been top of my list. I was working 48hours a week and was just finding no time to train. My own fault I know.

The individual elements of an application have varying periods of validity.

The psychometric test score is valid for three years (although it will need to be confirmed that your score fits the currently required score for your job). All being well, your RT score should stand.

The medical is valid for a year, so you may need to re-do it; it will depend on when you did your medical last year.

I'm assuming from your user name that you live in Manchester (although I may be wrong).

If your nearest AFCO is Manchester, I would give them a call this afternoon on 0161 236 2530 - they are open till 4.30 pm today. Say that you would like to pick up your application again and ask them what they would advise you to do next.

Which role were you looking at, by the way?

PS Bear in mind that re-joining the application process will trigger off the need to take your PJFT and attend the PRNC, both of which will require you to have reached a certain standard of fitness.



No that’s the correct AFCO & thank you for that, we’ve got a family cruise booked end of next October so I think il train hard and re apply after that!
