The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) conducts electronic examinations (e-Exams) for (Part-66) professional Aircraft Maintenance Licences.
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.
In line with the recent change to the FCL examinations, all AML Part 66 examinations will transition from the LAMP system to the Quadrant system. The first module exams delivered via the new Quadrant system will be on the 14 October with all modules and part module exams transitioned to Quadrant by the end of 2017.
Unlike the FCL exams in Quadrant, which have a number of minor changes to the way the exam questions appear to the candidate compared to LAMP, the AML Part 66 examination questions are unchanged from the way they appear in LAMP. The purpose of the notification is so that candidates are aware that the examination system is changing from LAMP to Quadrant, and that between October 14 and the end of December 2017 both examination systems will be being used.
Please see below to view details of the updated e exam format from October.
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.
