Registering yourself to use a drone or model aircraft
Register and take the test to fly
Use this service to:
- take the theory test to get a flyer ID
- register for an operator ID if you also own or are responsible for a drone or model aircraft
You must be at least 18 years old to get an operator ID.
You must be at least 13 years old to get a flyer ID by yourself.
If you’re younger, please ask your parent or guardian to help you and read the children and parent guidance.
Before you start
- an email address that you can check when registering
- a debit or credit card if you're registering for an operator ID
- details of any insurance required (opens in a new tab)
It’s a good idea to prepare for the theory test.
|Operator ID||£9||1 year|
|Flyer ID||£0||5 years|
If you already have an operator ID and just need a flyer ID, you’ll need to add your flyer ID in the My registration area.
