Reports are it's taking between 5 and 10 weeks
I've recently done my 2 kids renewals - 1st one is his first adult passport as he was about to turn 18, no problems got it in about 10 days. My daughters, after about 10 days, they rejected the photo as not enough contrast on the background (it was taken against the same wall, at the same time, as my sons - which was acceptable), and they wanted her birth certificate (bit odd it's a renewal, sure they must have had it for her first passport). Submitted a new photo on-line about 2 weeks ago - not heard if that is acceptable yet. Had to order a new birth certificate which took about a week to arrive - sent that to them at the start of this week. Not heard back yet - 4 weeks and counting.
