Completing the application and getting results

The details for what you need to do next will vary depending on the Medical Examiner you have chosen and what tests are required.

Your Medical Examiner will complete a Medical Assessment Report that will inform you whether you are eligible for a medical certificate.

If not eligible, you may, within 20 working days, ask the convener in writing to review the decision.
