Important Information

Passage of the National Defense Authorization Act on December 12, 2017 reinstated the hobbyist drone registration requirement by the FAA. Registration is now required on a permanent basis.

Hobby drone registration is generally appropriate for you if you are:

  • Operating a drone for personal interest and enjoyment

  • Not flying for profit, education, law enforcement, or rescue purposes

In order to register, you must be:

  • 13 years of age or older (if the owner is less than 13 years of age, a person 13 years of age or older must register the drone)

  • A U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident*

* Visiting foreign nationals must register their drone upon arrival in the United States (online registration serves as a certificate of ownership).

In order to register, you'll need:

  • Email address

  • Credit card, debit card, or Apple Pay

  • Physical address (not a post office box)
