They usually say 6 months prior to them expiring but they'll add that six months to your new passport once renewed ( that was the case when I did mine last year)

No you just apply again no need for ab interview or anything like that. You just put the passport number in the new application.

If it helps I renewed mine in July and my previous was almost 3 years out of date. I rang them first to check and they said long as you have your old passport go through the normal renewal process. Actually was rather impressed with the time scales also. Posted on a Saturday, got text on the Tuesday to say it was being processed, on the Friday was told it was processed and on the Monday was delivered. I applied via paper form obviously.
No idea regarding the kids ones.

thank you that is good to know

i was not going to re new till next summer as we wont need till then

they have only just expired

was hoping to do online but there may be issues with going from child to adult passports ??

thanks
I renewed my sons (aged 16) passport earlier this year from child to adult and you couldn't do it online then, you can use the old online service but this still needs the form printing off and physical passport photos rather than being able to upload your own photos on the new online service.
