One traffic offence won't affect at all. My wife had the same situation & caused nothing at all. We h...

Why don't you just phone the passport office and ask them what you can do. The number is 0300 222 0000. They're not like UKBA. They actually answer questions and help you out.

Thanks ban.s, Issue is we have all our names are too long so section 8 is even not enough to fill in. If we do full names in a separate sheet, would that be accepted by Post office/Passport office?

Thanks

Name is too long

Hello,
I am filling my son's Passport application now... I found an issue that parent name field is not enough to fit my full name with given boxes. Can I attach an extra document with my full name by keeping parent name field blank on original application?

This would be ideal, as this would entitle the wife to apply for and receive a certificate of entitlement in her passport, which would be even better than indefinite leave...
