    As others said. I actually had a few traffic and parking infringements at the time I applied, all of them paid. I went to court with one of them, it was my choice to dispute in court. I had forgotten about it but when I submitted my app I realised I had one I'd been in court for. So I submitted form 1023. At my interview, no questions asked. I didn't notify them of my other traffic / parking tickets. So you read correctly, the instructions say only the ones you went to court with. Remember it's a character question as they could check any time and corroborate your answers.

    Will try to, no rush as I don't have travel plans before November but in the next few days probably. Can't apply online, seems only renewals can be done online so have to go to the Post office pick up a form, fill in at home and return with it to the Post office But it will get there now since all else is done!

    Why would you wait for the AU passport? Can you not travel on your other one? This is exactly what I am going to do with my short holiday.

    Approval on 8th of May (test date 7th of May).

    Not at all, the ladies were quite helpful actually. This is the first ceremony since May for my council and I don't think our one is a very busy one. I think they get annoyed if you are calling straight after the test and directly about the letter etc. something that does not come from them but from DHA. I knew the invitation letters were to be sent app 1 month before the next ceremony, so that's what I told them and asked I just wanted to check if my name was on the list for the next ceremony. I think that's fair if you are planning a trip you'd want to know and plan accordingly.

    I called Wollahra Council yesterday to ask whether my name was on the list for the next ceremony on the 8 August and they said I was definitely on the list! So it’s all happening. Took app 10 months in total. Good luck everyone!!

    Congrats! Lol I was told 6-9 months. I think this is just a very standard thing they need to say (I strongly suspect their system gives them an indication of ETA taking into account the standard processing time and the time from app to test, e.g. 16 months less 7 months till test = 9 months, so they give you 6-9 months). Obv depends on the council and the number of ceremonies and people Hopefully sooner than that!!

    Exactly Congrats to you too! If you read the booklet and practise some online tests you should be fine. I found the test really easy

    Thank you! So much more relaxed now! It was the original date, I figured it was just a week later so couldn't be bothered with changing it
