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.

The fee payable for requesting a replacement licence is £48.

returned section for more details.
You must still have a valid medical certificate of the appropriate level for the type of licence
you are updating as well as a current and valid language proficiency level.
If you have not already converted your pilot licence to an EASA licence, requesting a
replacement licence will mean that your licence will be compulsorily converted to an EASA licence
and a conversion fee will be charged. These fees are set out in the Licence costs section.
