1. How to pay
When you apply online for registration with a licence to practise using GMC Online, you must pay by credit or debit card (Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, MasterCard and Maestro).
If you cannot apply online or pay by credit or debit card, please contact us for advice.
2. How much to pay
Fees for 2014/15 have been frozen at the level set in 2013. The fee for full registration with a licence to practise for those having been provisionally registered or those applying for full registration having recently qualified is £185. All other applicants for full registration pay £390.
The fee for provisional registration with a licence to practise will be £90. Further information is set out on our fees page.
3. Tax relief and receipts
The GMC is on the list of HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) approved organisations. This means you may be entitled to tax relief on your registration fee. Further information can be found on the HMRC website.
You can print receipts for payments made in the last six years from your GMC Online account.
