    Had DV but gave it up it after getting out. Held SC by way of work with defence contractor until 14mths ago.

    After going back to school, shortly going to start a job where I need vetting again.

    Can anyone steer me towards who do I need to speak to check on my status and if needed to getting it renewed?

  2. The DVA, google them. If you've not held your SC clearance in a 12 month period (as in used it in a post) then it may have lapsed.

    You can't apply for a renewal. Only a list X company can do that.

    Yup - lapsed. Helpful lass informed me that you get 12 months to transfer clearance from one list X employer to another. If it doesn't happen in that time frame, it lapses automatically.

    New paperwork required........
