CAA Drone and Model Aircraft Registration Scheme DMARES

Are FPV UK members exempt from the Drone Competency Test & Flyer ID?

Under the CAA’s General Exemption 1328 (http://publicapps.caa.co.uk/docs/33/1328.pdf) FPV UK members who have achieved the FPV UK ‘A’ certificate are exempt from taking the CAA’s competency test or carrying a Flyer ID.

If you haven’t already, you can do this ten multiple-choice question test in the member area on www.FPVUK.org.  It takes only a couple of minutes and your FPV UK membership certificate and electronic membership card will instantly show that you hold the ‘A’ certificate.

Are FPV UK members exempt from the Drone Registrations scheme?

Under the CAA’s General Exemption 1324 (http://publicapps.caa.co.uk/docs/33/1324.pdf)

FPV UK members are exempt from Operator Registration until 31 January 2020.  

We are working closely with the CAA to offer our members a very easy way to securely register their details with a simple click of a button from the member area on FPVUK.org.

Between now and the end of January 2020 we will contact every member offering them this service.  The CAA’s fee of £9 will be payable when you register.

Where do I get my operator ID?

Between now and 31st January 2020 FPV UK members are exempt from displaying an Operator ID.  Carrying a link to CAA General Exemption 1324 (http://publicapps.caa.co.uk/docs/33/1324.pdf) and your membership certificate in PDF on your phone will suffice.

If you wish to show someone that your membership is truly valid you may direct them to https://members.fpvuk.org/membership-check if you wish.  This verifies your membership number is real using your postcode as a secondary identifier.

Where do I get my Flyer ID?

FPV UK members who have passed the ‘A’ Certificate do not have to obtain a Flyer ID.  Carrying a link to the CAA’s General Exemption 1328 (http://publicapps.caa.co.uk/docs/33/1328.pdf) and your membership certificate showing your ‘A’ certificate as a PDF will suffice.
