Hi all . I’ve just had my offer of service for 26th May and filled out and sent my security clearance anybody any idea on how long clearance usually takes? Also when should I expect a call regarding my PRNC thanks

You should find out soon your prnc date. I’m sure it’s only a few weeks before you join up.
Regarding your security clearance I’m not sure as mine was done a month before I got my offer of a start date.

Security clearance times are completely related to each person's individual circumstances. If your background is clear it can be quite quick but any skeleton's found in your cupboard it can be a drawn out affair. If you're a non-UK resident time scales can become very protracted.

Prnc is two Weeks before my entry for me personally , And I was told my prnc date a few weeks after receiving my entry date . I think you get atleast a months notice for prnc .

Thanks, so will I get my date for PRNC once I’ve been security cleared? Or will I still get the date for PRNC even while being cleared I’m confused Thanks

Yeah looks like it varies on that one , don’t belive its dependent on the security clearance being completed to get your dates so I wouldn’t worry about that .

Ahhhh just thought this would make sense if the idea was to get security cleared to be made eligible for PRNC and then get the date when cleared hmmm ??

Are you notified when you’ve passed the security checks or is it a you’ll only hear if there’s a problem kind of deal? I submitted mine about 7 weeks ago and I’m still yet to hear anything

Would Think so , you could log on and check it ? But if you dont hear anything as you say it’s probably not a bad thing

I did my SC on the 6th of march and it took 15 days for it to be completed. it just depends if you have a clean background or if they any reason to investigate and also you have to remember it is a government system which will be understaffed so may take a while. I checked mine every day as i hate not being in control of something and almost did a backflip when it cleared haha.

Good Luck mate
