# Is there a time limit after the ATPL theory exam to get the license?

If I did the ATPL theory exam now, would I have a time limit to finish the ATPL? If so, what is it?

And what about other EASA licenses, CPL, (E-/CB-)IR, etc.?

• In Canada it's two years for the ATPL, but if you obtain a transport category type rating within that period it's indefinite as long as the type rating is current. Jun 27, 2018 at 4:00
