Restore your registration

When you restore your registration, you can only restore to the type of registration you last held.

You can apply to restore your registration with or without a licence. If you want to join the specialist or GP register, you'll need to apply to do this separately.

Restoration applications usually take between one and three months so allow yourself plenty of time when applying.
