    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 process

    1. To request verification of your licence, please complete a form SRG 1160 and return it by post, email or fax using the details below. You must pay the below fee when you submit the form.
    2. You will then need contact whoever requested the verification to let them know you have done this
    3. They must then contact the CAA directly by email on pldverifications@caa.co.uk to request the verification
    4. We will process the request within 19-26 working days of receipt of a complete application


    The fee payable for licence verification is £46 and you must pay this when you submit the form.

    Please note - For security and to help prevent fraud the CAA will only verify your licence details directly to other National Aviation Authorities (NAA), Companies and Airlines.

    Any subsequent requests, following changes to your licence, or requests to verify your details to an additional NAA, company or airline must be dealt with separately and will involve a separate charge.

    Please note that no verification process is available for NPPL or LAPL holders, as they are not ICAO compliant.
