My sone, who was 16 last summer has had neither a card or a number through yet. Should he have received this yet? Or am I being impatient?

My son, even!

I think you are normally issued it before their 16th birthday, my daughter was 16 a couple of weeks ago and got hers I think in November

I'm pretty sure both my DC got their cards a few weeks before their 16th birthday - but that was several years ago now, maybe the cuts have slowed down the process? Probably worth checking up though.

OP- my DS was 16 last year too and we have not had his, will chase them for it today (thanks to poster who provided number).

Mine got theirs about 6 weeks before their 16th birthdays.

OP- I just called and they can only talk to your DC so I'm going to get my DS to call them later once he back from school.

DS got a letter just before he was 16 last November.
Doesn't look as though they do cards any more - DD had a card 2 years ago.
