    Yes.

    About a year for your competency and about 3-6 months for the actual licence.

    So start monday.

    the answer is way to blady long! If you apply now it should take longer than usual because if the whole relicenceing thing and every one always waiting for the last min to do everything. Hope i am wrong! Myne has been lying at the dfo for 7 months now,hasnt even moved!
