The only British passport I have held is a British Visitor'd

Resolved Question:

The only British passport I have held is a British Visitor'd passport that expired in 1976. Do I apply for an Extension of a passport to full validity or do I apply for My first British passport?

If you are a British national you can apply for British passport. You can apply for a first adult passport if you are 16 or over and have never had a child passport.
I hope this clarifies your enquiry.

This doesn't answer my question. Which of the two do I apply for an Extension of a passport or a First British Passport.. The British Visitors Passport was valid for one year and was issued to UK Citizens for travel to most European countries
Expert:  frantzgregory replied 1 year ago.
Hello
The British Visitor's Passport (BVP) was abolished in 1996. BVP is not accepted as evidence of British citizenship. If you have never had a child passport and you have evidence of being a British citizen then you can apply for a first adult passport.
I hope this clarifies your question.
