You can renew a rating whose validity is about to expire by 1 year by carrying out a proficiency check or refresher training.
If the new expiry date of your rating is not signed on the reverse side of your licence by your examiner, an application for the renewal of the rating is required. You can find Information about this on the page for helicopters or aircraft.
If the renewal of your rating has been signed off on the back of your licence document by an authorised instructor/examiner, no new licence document will be sent. Confirmation of registration will not be sent to you. If documents are missing, then, of course, we will contact you, the examiner and/or the training organisation. If you wish to apply for a new licence document, then, of course, you can send the application.
An Express Service is not available for this product.
