IDPs are £8 from RAC (haven't checked AA price) - but only till 31 Jan, then £5.50 from P.O.

P.O. web site says you can defer start date by up to 3 months, so may be worth getting one now to start on Brexit day - they only have 12m validity.

On the other hand, no one really knows when Brexit day is now...

does anyone know if I can start my PPL training while in the process of changing my medical through the soli form. My UK caa medical expires on the 6th of February so i'm looking to transfer to the irish IAA. But my ppl classes are starting in about 2 months. Would it be problem to start the transfer in the middle of my training ?

Anyone know how long IAA SOLI licence conversions are taking right now ?
the IAA received my application on 10 Dec and the UK CAA took the £45 on the 8th Jan.

Sent my application to the IAA on Nov 27th, they contacted the CAA on Dec 11th. The CAA didnít send my Doc155 etc to the IAA untill Jan 21st, after I called and asked about the progress of my application. Apparently the CAA missed the request from the IAA, Iím hoping to hear from the IAA sometime soon.

This is consistent with conversations I have had with other licensing Authorities who say the delays are all at the UK CAA end. Because of the delays some Authorities are interpreting the process as able to be completed after 29 March provided the change of SOLI application is received by them before that date.

Did it a year ago - took the CAA five months !!! Chaos in there for the last several years.

When I called the UK CAA medical dept a couple of weeks ago, they said that basically i was ďguaranteedĒ to get the IAA licence, as the UK CAA had recieved the request before Xmas.
i got the sense that they have some informal agreement between authorities

Do you know how long it took the UK CAA to sent the forms back to the aviation authority you want to change your license to, after they took the money?

For me, the CAA received the request for Doc 155 by the IAA on the 18th of December, I was charged the 45 pounds the next day and I was informed by the CAA that the license verification was sent today to the IAA.

Got to ask but did you submit the licence verification request via the IAA or the CAA ? The IAA has sent Doc 155 to the CAA but I do not remember seeing that I needed to ask the CAA for a licence verification ? Have I missed something ?

FWIW:

20-09-2018 I send transfer papers to UK CAA + Irish IAA.

02-10-2018 IAA charges EUR 250 to credit card.

09-10-2018 CAA charges GBP 45 to credit card.

23-10-2018 CAA contacts me via email because they want to take another payment, but have already destroyed the form with my card details. They say I should have sent two copies of that form, one for licensing and one for medical! I pointed out that it's one application, and that if it involves multiple departments they should share info before destroying forms... they wouldn't listen. Gave them card details over the phone, new payment of GBP 77 taken same day.

27-11-2018 IAA contacts me via email saying they received medical info from UK. However CAA had written that I took an ECG in 2009, but did not have any ECG records attached. IAA asks me to contact my doctor to forward ECG records. I replied that I never took an ECG (why would I, not required for Class 2 holders under the age of 40) so this is a CAA mistake. IAA employee forwards this to medical assessor.

04-01-2019 I write an email to follow up on progress. Reply from IAA same day, ECG discrepancy resolved and licence almost ready.

10-01-2019 Irish licence ready, can be exchanged with old licence either in person or also via DHL without going to Dublin.

Thank goodness for Irish common sense, I really thought that ECG thing would stall the whole process! I'm sure if it was the other way around the CAA would have demanded authenticated proof of the exam never having taken place.

The RPPL-F-100E which is sent direct to the IAA by post.

SRG 1202 - sent to CAA, transfer of medical records with separate payment form SRG 1201.

SRG 2150 - sent to CAA, application to release information to IAA for the SOLI change.

SRG 1202/1201 - [email protected]
SRG 2150 - [email protected].uk

I think you’ve confused the issue if you sent them a 1202. That’s the form to transfer to the UK, not from it!

Yes to be clear, I m leaving the UK CAA to the IAA. SFIM'S reply seem to be the other way around.

my reply is the correct way round, i have just done it successfully, the wording on the top of the 1202 is confusing unfortunately.
if you look at page 2 you specify there what you want to do (to IAA from CAA)

Indeed. Thanks for pointing this subtlety .

Do we really need to send a certified copy of our UK licence to the people who have issued it ( the CAA ) ? SRG 2150 cannot be done only by email ?

You have to send a certified copy only if there have been entries on it subsequent to issue, which there obviously will be if you have had it for more than one year and your TR is current.
