I passed my skills test last Novemeber in OBA so its a CAA license. I am 17 in October so will apply then. I know I have 1 year to apply for the license but I am worried about keeping it valid. I haven't been able to fly since last November because of money.
I am wondering about the minimum hours to keep the rating valid. Do I need to do those hours to keep my rating current even though I don't have my license now?
I did have a look in Lasors but couldn't find the answer/got a bit confused!
So, even if the validation period starts from last November when the skills test was passed, I would assume you will still have a year (from November next) to complete the 12 hours etc for revalidation.
Just check the validity certificate within the licence when it's issued so you know exactly when it needs to be revalidated.
If in doubt, contact the licensing authority for clarification.

I'm in a similar situation (broke!!) so have been checking it out. The 12hr etc option is out of the question for me. You can also do a proficiency check with an examinar so that's my plan. From what I recall this has to be done 3 months prior to your SEP class rating lapsing (open to correction).
Asked an examiner and was told if the licence does lapse you'll need to complete a proficiency check and this is the same as the one you'd do before the licence lapsed so from what I gather if it does lapse then it's not the end of the world.
Anyone know if there are IAA fees associated with revalidating the SEP class rating if it expires??
