I am slightly confused.

I have just had my SEP revalidated by test as I didn't have the hours requirement in my second year.

My examiner signed my licence with the new SEP expiry and signed my logbook and sent me on my way after paying at the club.

He said there was no CAA fee however looking at their website it states revalidation of a rating £93. At what point would I need to pay this?

You'd need to pay this if for whatever reason, you'd had your licence re-issued with an expired SEP rating. This would put the SEP rating on the "back" of the licence. You'd need to pay this fee to re-issue the licence with the rating on the front. If your SEP rating is on the front of the licence, you don't need to pay anything.

Ok so I need to change my address very soon. I am assuming this will fall under that despite no charge for changing address?

Make sure you send in the paperwork to renew your SEP rating before changing address, otherwise if you change the address with an expired SEP rating, it'll go on the back and you'll have to pay to get it back on the front.

The CAA don't charge for a change of address (one of the few things they don't charge for).

possibly due to the enormous number of issue 1 'Clued Up' magazines that 'bounced'!

More likely as it is a requirement of the GDPR to keep details up to date.

Indeed, though when I changed my name they did charge me for that privilege :roll:

But bizarrely they will not trust you to just say where you live.

Some obviously trustworthy person employed in aviation (!) has to certify a copy of both your licence ratings page and then either a passport, ID card or driving licence - one of which doesn't show your address anyway, and all three of which one may (entirely reasonably) simply not possess.

I'm yet to understand what sort of nefarious goings-on they think might occur if people who hold flight crew licences were just allowed to change their address without the above paperwork requirement.

You can add to that list an addressed utility bill. Also not available if you’ve only just moved house and not yet received any utility bills, as I found out on my last house move.
