Other information

Native English speakers may be granted English Language Proficiency at level 6 during the practical test but non native speakers will need formal assessment at a CAA approved language language school in order to be given a grade from 1-6.  Level 4 is the minimum standard required to hold either a FRTOL or a flight crew licence.

The licence is valid for life but you must apply for it within the validity of the theory and practical test limits, check the CAA website for more information if needed.
