If you have any medical issues or concerns, the approval for your medical may take additional time. Therefore you should not hesitate to begin this process now.

NOTE: In April 2016, the FAA separated the FAA Medical from the student pilot license.You may find material on the internet referring to the combined student pilot license / medical, however this is no longer the case.The documents are issued separately.However, if you already received your medical before April 1, 2016, you may already have your combined student pilot license/medical.

Important Information About Personal Documents

The information presented on all forms of ID must match exactly.  Common issues include misspelled names, wrong birth dates, wrong eye or hair color, not including “Jr” or “Sr” or “II” or “III”.   The driver’s license or US Passport MUST MATCH your birth certificate at time of ONE STOP processing.  If your birth certificate or passport lists your official legal name as “James Robert Smith”, your driver’s license MUST say “James Robert Smith”, not “Jim R. Smith”, “J.R. Smith”, or “Jim Bob Smith”.  If it does not match, go to your local DMV and get a corrected driver’s license before showing up for your One Stop appointment.

Ensure when you put data into the web data bases for both your FAA medical and your FAA Student Pilot License that YOU USE YOUR FULL LEGAL NAME as it is or will be on your driver’s license or Passport – you may be disenrolled from the course if your documents do not match.

Additionally, your address on the driver’s license must be a current residential address at which you can receive mail.  This may be a parental address if you are living in a temporary location (apartment, residence hall, fraternity house, etc).
