Licence Revalidation

| March 14, 2014

Although the current amateur radio licence is known as a “licence for life”, all radio amateurs are required to revalidate their licence at least every five years. The process to do this requires every licence holder to contact Ofcom to confirm or update the details on the licence database. This process has been underway for some time and to date some 60 percent of licences have been successfully revalidated.

The quickest way to revalidate is to do so online via the Ofcom website, or by email to amateur.validations@ofcom.org.uk This can be done at any time. If you need assistance in the process, Ofcom staff are available to help, but please be patient during times of heavy workload.
