Less than two weeks from sending the old passport off to receiving the new one, it doesn't take long at all.

Yep, 10 days for our Son this year and similar last year for our daughter. Very efficient, not sure how, but it is!

That was also the turnaround time for our son's passport in 2016 when he renewed it from Texas. I also renewed my UK passport in 2016, while living in the UK and it took about 2 weeks.

He has since moved to England and just renewed his US passport last month through the US embassy, that took a little over 2 weeks. So he is now set for the next 9 or 10 years. Earlier this year my wife and I renewed our US passports through the UK embassy. Next year my wife needs her UK passport renewing, then we will have a nice long gap before more renewals.

Just to confirm, people received their old passports back? I need to renew mine soon and obviously need the old one for the visa (expired) in it!

Yes, they send your old passport back with the corner of the cover and the data page cut off. It arrives in a separate package to the new passport.
