Obtain the certificate necessary to fly your class of drone

To fly a drone weighing more than 250g you must also undergo training and take a test. The type of training and testing depends on the sub-category (A1, A2, A3) in which the drone is flown. Further information.

You can take the test necessary for your drone sub-category on UAS.gate: To obtain a remote pilot certificate (A2), you must first complete the certificate of competency training (A1/A3) and then take additional modules and a practical test.

For the certificate of competency, it takes about four hours to go through the training modules and complete the test. These must be completed within a 30-day time period. To pass the test, you must answer at least 75% of the questions correctly.

How do I obtain my certificate after having taken the test?

After completing the test, you will receive your result and certificate in PDF file format on the UAS.gate dashboard. The certificate will also be sent to the email address you provided when registering on the portal.

Certificates are valid for five years, after which the theoretical knowledge acquired must be refreshed. You will be alerted shortly before the validity of your certificate is due to end.
