He should of been given a printed page with hand written tracking details - its 9 digit number (at least that is what happened to us yesterday).

He just got a printed receipt but nothing else. So it means I need to call the council. Starts really well :-/

.....and breathe!!! There is no call for panic here :-)

I would say look through the paper work before you ring NCS. If you dont find anything, give NCS a bell and see if they can give that to you over the phone. Your OH may need to do this as it is his application.
