How do you apply for a radio license for walkie-talkies?
I want to request a two-way radio license
Before you can start using your two-way radio, you need a two-way radio license. You can apply for a license with the Belgisch Instituut voor Postdiensten en Telecommunicatie (BIPT). Fill out the entire form and you're assigned your own frequency. This frequency can only be used with the two-radio(s) that were purchased by you.
I want to change my two-way radio license
You've decided that your two-way radios have become obsolete and want to buy new ones. This is possible, but since the two-way radio license is paired with your current two-way radios, you need to pass on a change. By filling out this form you can cancel your current two-way radio license and carry it over to your new two-way radios.
I want to cancel my two-way radio license
If you no longer wish to use your two-way radios, you need to cancel your two-way radio license. You can do this at any time. If you want to cancel your license in the middle of the year, you're recompensed for part of the cost. To cancel your two-way radio license, you must mail the original license back to the BIPT, signed with a note and date. You can also choose to carry over your license to someone else.
