Help with two way radio licence applications

Obtaining a radio licence can be a daunting task, especially if this is new territory for you. Fear not, DCS 2 Way Radio's expert team is here to help!

We will help you decide what type of radio licence you need in the UK and then assist you with your application to Ofcom, ensuring you have filled in all the necessary paperwork to get you started.

Do you need a radio licence?

Yes, unless your two way radio operates on a pre-programmed, licence free frequency approved by Ofcom (within the band 446.0 to 446.1 MHz). Licence free radios (commonly referred to as walkie talkies) don’t usually provide the coverage or features that a business requires, however. 

What does a radio licence cost?

Fees for a two way radio licence vary depending on the type you need (we can advise you about this). Here are details of Ofcom’s current fees.


For more information about the types of licences available, read our guide to two way radio licences for businesses.

If you need help applying for a radio licence for your business, please get in touch.
