Drone Flyer & Operator

I am cinsidering purchasing a drone and thought I had better check the guidelines for owning and flying drones in the UK.

Although the drone i’m looking at is is under 250g I decided to register as a flyer and operator and managed to complete the test today to complete my registration. You can do the online training free on the governments website and then take the test. If you want to operate and fly drones above Class 0 and 250g and/or with a camera then you can pay the registration fee as an operator for £9 renewable yearly.
