It just depends. It was nearly 3 months after submission that I had my viva, and I received the official notification of corrections after a further 6 weeks because of an administrative mess-up. In the meantime others have turned their PhDs around much more quickly.
I'd also be wary about banking on minor corrections. Many people do - and I certainly hope you are one of them - however it's not entirely within your control and in my opinion it's better to be mentally prepared for a tougher outcome.
I handed in January - Viva in April (minor corrections - letter outlining them received 3 weeks later) - Completed corrections and handed in in July, they were signed off 3 weeks later by my internal - I was given 1 month to get the thesis bound and handed in - pass list arrived last week (Mid Sept).
I probably could have shaved 2 or 3 months off the time I took to do the corrections and get the thesis bound, but my motivation to jump through these last hoops was surprisingly low!!
Good luck getting 'wrapped up' Tirred!
