    Hi there, does anyone know how long it takes from pip sending a text message to let you know they have received your completed form.
    will it be at an assessment centre or phone assessment 
    thanks

    Some recent posts on here report fairly quick assessments but can be many months so very variable and no definite answer.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
