The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) conducts electronic examinations (e-Exams) for Aircraft Maintenance Licences
to replace the paper-based examinations system.
e-Exams will cover all examinations taken by applicants for UK and European (Part-66) professional Aircraft
Read our guidance on how to register for e-exams
Before sitting any Licensing examination candidates are required to read all of the documents contained in the
'Candidate Examination Guidance' section on this page.
The e-Exam system has a number of part module exams available for candidates to sit, see Products.
These cover the most common limitation removal scenarios:
We are able to provide limitation removal exams for all limitations not listed above on a case by case basis.
They are available as 'on request' e-Exams; when you are registered for an e-Exams service please contactAML-eExams@caa.co.uk if you have a specific examination requirement not listed in the available exams (Products).
The CAA maintains the capability to deliver BCAR section L written examinations for BCAR Section L Licence holders.
These examinations are delivered on a case by case basis as paper based examinations.
They are available on request; when you are registered for an e-Exams service please contactAML-eExams@caa.co.uk.
Candidates and Approved Training Organisations (ATOs) may raise concerns or challenge the accuracy and effectiveness
of an examination question, paper, or supporting materials. The CAA thoroughly reviews all such instances via the
following two protocols and results may be amended where genuine issues are identified.
The CAA operates a performance management programme to maintain the integrity and effectiveness of the examination content.
With the implementation of e-Examinations, candidates are able to make comments during and at the end of the test. The comments are made by clicking on the pencil icon presented on screen and this prompts a text box to appear for comments to be entered. Entering a comment during the examination does not constitute a Full Review but every comment is reviewed by the CAA.
A candidate can request a Full Review which is described as a comprehensive investigation into the accuracy and integrity of examination content and materials delivered to the candidate during a specific test.
A full examination fee should be paid by the candidate at the time of requesting the review, a fee which is fully refundable if an error is found and the candidate marks are adjusted accordingly.
The Full Review process is a fast track process which the CAA endeavours to complete within 10 workings days of the date or receipt of the request. A letter will be issued to the Candidate (cc'd the Membership ATO) explaining the findings and closing actions.
