Please note that, in the event of the UK leaving the EU without a negotiated agreement, 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 UK’s departure from the EU. In the meantime, the guidance provided and the application forms accessed via the CAA website portal will continue to be valid.

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) appoints and authorises examiners to conduct written and practical radio-telephony examinations for the Radio Operator's Certificate of Competence (ROCC).

The CAA does not approve any training courses for the ROCC.
Please note - The CAA is introducing electronic examinations (e-Exams) to replace the paper-based system. This transition has commenced with Flight Crew Professional examinations for Aeroplane & Helicopter ATPL, CPL and IR.

NB: Section 5 of the SRG 1413 will need to be completed by the examiner who has conducted the written and practical examinations.
Once you have completed the SRG 1413 application form, this will need to be submitted via post (address below) with the appropriate supporting documents.
