Identification requirement for flight crew licensing applications

Pilots are required to submit certified copies of their ID (such as passport or driving licence) for certain Flight Crew Licensing applications.

For security and fraud prevention reasons, the UK CAA is no longer able to accept black and white copies of ID documents.

Any applications submitted on or after 14 May 2018 which require ID documents to be submitted will be rejected if the ID documents are not in colour, leading to a delay in your application.

The ID document must also be certified. Please refer to our website for more information on who can certify your documents.
