Following a consultation by the Department for Transport, the UK is considering changes to drone regulation. There is a draft Private Members Bill before Parliament regarding this issue that is due for a second reading in February 2019. Although we have yet to see a draft Bill, among the suggestions from the DFT are compulsory registration for drones over a certain weight, tests for pilots and wider police powers to enforce the new rules.
