COVID-19 – Extension of six month test validity

Exemption ORS4 1386 applies to applicants for the issue of a UK licence, rating or certificate.

It provides alleviation from the six month limit between the completion of a test or assessment and submission of an application for the appropriate licence, and is applicable for a UK-issued EASA licence, rating or certificate to those who have passed a test before 1 December 2020.

To ensure that licence applications are processed in a timely manner, applicants are advised to apply for their licence as soon as circumstances allow, and not to wait for the approach of the exemption expiry deadline.
