Probably best to take it in to the AFCO, by the way make sure you include what month you moved in to your present address (not just the year) - I omitted this and got pulled in to an office in the AFCO and asked for it!
Well, when i did it, i had to bring it to the careers office with me when i sat my entry test. They went throught it with me there and then to check that it was all correct. IF you have to post it off seperately then i would definately bring it into the careers office to get them to go through it with you anyway.
I know what you mean about distance thing, i have the same problem as well. If i remember correctly the form is for RAF and RN security clearance and the Army have a different type. I think this is right, i know one of the forms, maybe a blue one was like that. Your best bet in that case is just to ring the careers office on tuesday or try the 08456 07 55 55 recruitment line and see if they could help at all.
I have just done this part of the process. Is this for officer or rating? For officer I sent mine all back to OCLC Manchester and then they sent it to AIB who filled in the rest of the form for me, didnt have to go to my AFCO and it is definitely fine.
A hint for everyone doing SCs- Be exhaustive. The AFCO people can be difficult sometimes so when it says for you not to bother filling it in normally and to answer the question somewhere else, DO IT ANYWAY. And if your joining the reserves dont expect to be Security Cleared for at least 20 years after your death.
