Hi all, I wonder if you coul dhelp me.

I have just checked the crb tracker and they have started it! At last:)

I have had stage 2 (police computer check) and stage 3 (POA list 99 )completed already.

Stage 4 (police) is in progress
I was wondering which stage takes the longest

Thanks XX

Stage 4 takes the longest. Mine was at this stage for 3 months! After a month ring them and keep bugging them eventually they will rush it through for you though.

CRB checks are what makes the whole process long in my opinion , mine took nearly 12 weeks to come back and another 2 weeks till I received my certificate, try be patient ! xxxx

No problem. As susan said try to be patient. But after a while i would start to ring them. I never did get an explanation as to why mine took so long and my sister in law who sent hers after mine only took 4 weeks!!!
