When your application arrives with the CAA, it will undergo a desk-based assessment from a
Flight Crew Licensing Officer or Assistant. Following an acceptable assessment your licence will be
processed, signed and despatched.
We will contact you by telephone or email if we have any queries regarding your application and
may keep your application pending while the additional requirements are met.
An assessment and refund fee may be charged if the CAA rejects your application for not meeting
all of the requirements. This will also be applied if you choose to cancel your application.
We try to process all applications within 10 working days of receipt of all required information, including all necessary documentation and payment. However, some applications may take longer.
Over the next few months we will begin issuing licences on new security paper.
