• EU exit

    Please note that, in the event of UK participation in EASA and mutual recognition of licences and certificates ceasing, some CAA website content and application forms may continue to carry the EASA logo or reference the EU or EASA rather than the UK CAA in the short term. 

    These will be updated in due course following the outcome of the transition period negotiations on the long-term aviation relationship between the UK and the EU.  In the meantime, the guidance provided and the application forms accessed via the CAA website portal will continue to be valid.

  • Pre-requisites

    • You must hold an existing Part 66 Aircraft Maintenance Licence
    • You must be able to provide evidence to support your request in the form of valid passport, change of name deed poll and /or marriage certificate, not required for change of address

    How much does it cost?

    • £48.00, if applying to change both name and nationality at the same time it would be £45.00 per transaction.

    There is currently no fee for a change of address.

    Please note if a change of personal details generates a change to the privileges held on a Part-66 Aircraft Maintenance licence (as per Annex to ED Decision 2013/024/R10/09/2013), your licence will be issued for a further five year validity, and will therefore be subject to an additional proportionate fee. If this is the case, you will be contacted again at a later date.

    If you are applying for any other additional services the appropriate fee will also apply.

    An additional fee will be payable if you wish your documents to be returned by secure courier.

    Please see the Scheme of Charges (Personnel licensing) for full details.
