Ofcom licensing portal for aircraft, amateur and ships radio

Use Ofcom's licensing portal to apply for an aircraft, amateur or ships radio licence. You can also use the portal to manage your existing licence.

General Notice

On 11 December 2023 we published a General Notification on our website. This gives notice that we are proposing to vary the terms and conditions of the amateur radio licences; to align them with the changes we have made as part of our review of the amateur radio licensing framework. The aim of these changes is to ensure that amateur radio can continue to thrive and remain a vibrant and valuable part of the broader communication landscape for years to come.

Read more information on the General notice and the variation process.
