Simple answer is that if you fly a drone, then you need one!
If your drone has a camera or weighs 250g or more then you need to be registered with the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority.) You will need to take a 40 question theory test and get a Flyer ID. This Flyer ID number is free, valid for 5 years and can be done online with the CAA. You will also need to obtain an Operator ID. To do this you need to be over the age of 18. The Operator ID is valid for 12 months. To find out more information about the test, flyer ID and operator ID then you can see more below or visit www.caa.co.uk or register-drones.caa.co.uk
Carrying a Drone Pilot ID Card is the best and easiest way to show that you are allowed to fly a drone. Our ID cards show your name, Operator ID, Flyer ID and essentially a photo of you. Our double sided Drone Pilot ID cards also have a magnetic strip, a signature strip and a QR code on the rear that when scanned takes you directly to the CAA website.
Like all of our cards, our Drone Pilot Cards are made from biodegradable plastic and measure 86mm by 54mm (3.37 inches by 2.13 inches.) This is the same size as a credit card so they fit perfectly in wallets and purses.
Carrying one of our Drone Pilot ID Cards shows that you are legally allowed to fly a drone.
The operator ID is essentially your registration number and is held by the person who is responsible for managing and maintaining the drone. Your Operator number must be labeled on your drone, it is against the law not to do this.
The flyer ID shows that you have passed the theory test and are allowed to fly a drone. There is no age limit for this but if you’re under 13 you must have a parent or guardian with you when you take the test.
