How and when to apply
The quickest and simplest way to re-apply is online.
You just need to log into your online account and re-apply. Even if you haven’t applied online before, you don’t need to register as you’ll have had a customer reference number sent to you in the post.
Although we recommend applying online, we still have paper applications available if you need one. If you require a paper application, contact us.
