Re: Slightly damaged citizenship certificate before passport application

Just apply for the passport and send it as it is, they'll contact you and ask for you to get it replaced if they want it replaced, but you have to pay for it, so might worth trying to apply before. And on top takes ages as well to have it replaced. Now a days its stored on their system. They don't ...

Re: Life in the UK registration mistake

So just to confirm, the purpose of doing the test is irrelevant when applying for citizenship? As long as I have the pass certificate it doesn't matter what my original purpose of doing the test was for. right? Thats correct. Its valid for ILR and Citizenship and does not have any expiry date.

Its not an error that you can apply for reconsideration. I'd say wait until three year are passed. BTW I don't understand why did you get the fine? I mean you were in passenger's seat?
