What you need to know before you start
To fly your drone after June 1, 2019, you must pass a Transport Canada exam.
We strongly recommend that you attend a drone flight school before attempting the exam.
Why? The exam covers a lot of new rules you may not know yet.
Flight reviews are conducted by flight reviewers affiliated with drone flight schools.
If you fly a drone without meeting these requirements, you may be fined. Fines are:
- $1,000 for recreational users
- $5,000 for commercial users
