The EASA Light Aircraft Pilot’s Licence (LAPL) Aeroplanes is a non-expiring “lifetime” licence. Once issued the licence is held unless it is provisionally suspended, suspended or revoked by the issuing authority or is surrendered by the holder A LAPL(A) is only valid in all the EU countries with restrictions on aeroplane weight (maximum take-off mass of two metric tonnes or less) and with no more than four people on board the aircraft (including crew and passengers) .

The LAPL(A) is different to other licence types in that it does not contain aircraft type or class ratings with expiry dates that need revalidation. They include privileges built into the licence itself, so a LAPL(A) won't have an Single Englinge Piston Land (SEP) rating with an expiry date, but it will have stated SEP Land privileges which the pilot must keep valid by ensuring at least a certain minimum amount of flying is maintained. A LAPL(A) can however contain other (non-aircraft) ratings e.g. night, or aerobatics Applicants for a LAPL(A) shall be at least 17 years of age. A student pilot for a LAPL(A) shall be at least 16 years of age before first solo flight

For more information about the LAPL please see pages 187-190 of the CAP 804 document issued by the CAA in conjuction with EASA.
