How to register my drone in the UK?
The UK’s new Drone and Model Aircraft Registration and Education Scheme it will go live on 5th November. Anyone responsible for a drone or unmanned aircraft (including model aircraft) weighing between 250g and 20kg will need to register as an operator. The cost for this is now £9 per year.
You will also need to take and pass an online education test but don’t worry, this is free and renewable every 3 years and can be done easily on line. Both of these requirements become law on 30 November 2019. When you register, you’ll get an operator ID with your certificate of registration. You must display your operator ID on your drones and model aircraft. You can use the same operator ID for all your drones and model aircraft.
Now, we all like to keep our data safe so our advice would be to register directly with the CAA and not a 3rd party provider.
If you are under 13 years of age you can only register with a parent or guardian present.
We’ve now added the official CAA registration link to our website here, but remember, you can’t use this link before the 5th November 2019.
Happy flying and remember, just because you are now registered does not mean you can use your drone commercially. If you need a commercial drone operator? You can find one really easily on our website.Search Pilots
