Default PDF document too big

Hi there
I need to attach a scanned document to an online application form.
The application form is french and requires the document to be less than 400kb, the scanned page is 1.3mb.
What program can i use to reduce the size please?
My mum has scanned the document and isnt IT savvy to try and reduce the size when scanning!
cheers!

Try this https://www.ilovepdf.com/compress_pdf

You may have to go for the higher level of compresssion to get down from 1.3 mb to 400 kb. The middle level just about halves the size with tolerable quality. You could do it in 2 stages.
