Important information for students to register on the CAA Portal for online PPL exams

October 21st, 2020 Posted by Bristol & Wessex Aeroplane Club

The UK CAA has changed the way their PPL Examinations are performed, launched earlier this month all student undergoing PPL courses no longer complete written examinations but complete an online examination which consists of randomly selected questions.

The change was brought about by the Civil Aviation Authority to “improve customer experience through an enhanced digital offering.” The new platform was to be rolled out and trialled by a selection of trial flying schools across the UK over the summer months, but this was put on hold during the current Covid-19 pandemic. It has been launched recently.

Students need to register with the CAA in order to use this new platform and we have put together this article to ensure students are ready for their upcoming exams. A full CAA guide with links on where to register and more in-depth information can be found here.

Please be aware that to register you will need:

Formal photographic identification (one of the below)

  • Passport
  • Driving licence
  • National identity card (Including citizen card or other government recognised ID)

Proof of address or existing CAA documentation (one of the below)

  • Driving licence
  • Bank statement
  • Identity card
  • Utility bill
  • Council tax bill
  • Council rent book
  • Mortgage statement
  • Existing CAA documentation (e.g. medical certificate)

Please note the same document cannot be used for both i.e. driving licence can only be used for photo identification or proof of address. An additional item of documentation would also be required.
