Type Rating during licence transfer

Hi folks !

I have a question regarding a doubt I had reading the type rating application form.
I just successfully completed a type rating (my first one) on a multi pilot jet aircraft.
I began the course and done the skill test with my current UK licence( that I still have in my pocket), but I started the SOLI transfer to another EASA country long time ago.
During the course, the new CAA called my stating the my new licence was ready to be released.
considering that I had no time to go there, I preferred to continue with my UK one.

The doubt came out when I read in the UK CAA website the requirements for the TR endorsement, as I found that my medical records must be held in the country where Iím applying to (UK indeed).
In my case, I suppose that my records should already been sent to the new CAA, otherwise my new licence wouldnít have been ready.

My plan was to endorse in uk the TR and maybe start the transfer again, but Iím quite nervous about this.
I appreciate your suggestions
Thank you !

I suspect your best course of action would be to contact your new SOLI and explain that you have completed a TR whilst waiting for the transfer and ask them to endorse it onto your new licence. If the UK CAA has sent all your details to them then they will not be able to issue the TR. Your UK licence will be withdrawn as you cannot hold more than one licence.

Thanks for your reply.
The thing is that as far as I know, the licence I have got in my hand is the one to be considered valid.
So apparently is not true.

You are correct, but if the means of administering it has been removed, then you need to look at the possible ways of adding your new TR and if the new NAA is in the position to issue a licence then they have it within their power to issue the new rating as well.
