Question UK Passport Advice - August 24th 2010, 07:01 PM

So I just got some forms sent to me about getting a new passport. The one I have expired in 2006 and the picture was taken when I was about 8 years old. By the time I use the new passport I'll be 18. I think you'll agree, whether or not it had expired, I'd need a new one.
There is a sticky in this forum about it but it only covers United States procedure so I have a few questions.

Firstly, I am technically renewing my passport because I do have one, it just expired. But because I'm now over 16, I'm also getting my first adult passport. According to the guide that came with the forms. The sections that need to be filled out are different for renewal and first adult, so which do I go with? I figured first adult but wanted to check anyway.

Secondly, does anyone have a rough idea of how much it costs? I figured it'd be around 75 or so and there is a number to call but despite it being a free number, I don't have much credit on my phone so it won't let me call.

Thirdly, can anyone tell me exactly which documents I'll need of both mine and my parents? I can't really understand what the guide says.

Lastly, will I need to go for an interview since it's not my first ever passport, just my first adult one?

Any help on this would be appreciated because I'm totally lost.

You are applying for your first adult passport so you have to fill in those sections. Also renewing a passport means the one up have is still in date but about to run out.

It costs 75 I think, mine did but it might have changed since then.

You can apply online and then at the end it will tell you what proof you need to send and where too.
This link explains it better than I could

I do think you need to go to an interview but they will let you know.
