The CAA has restarted examinations at Aviation House Gatwick and at a number of UK and International venues. To ensure compliance with government mandated social distancing requirements and other health and safety measures we have had to reduce capacity and amend the schedule at a number of venues. We are dealing with exam sessions in date order, please be aware that your exam session time and date is subject to change. The CAA are working hard to minimise the impact of any changes and where possible these changes are being made in consultation with ATO’s but ultimately amendments will be at sole discretion of the CAA. Any travel and related expenses incurred by the candidate to attend any CAA examination will not be refundable by the CAA in the event that the CAA amends an examination due to Covid-19 restrictions.
When attending your examinations you must adhere to all CAA policies in addition to any specific policy of the organisation in which the venue is hosted. Please ensure that you pay close attention you’re the required and permitted items for your examination as stated on your confirmation. Please note that a face covering must be worn at all venues and throughout your examination.
Please see the current policies from different ATO’s below.
You may have attended examinations at Aviation House in the past and have familiarity with the building layout and exam procedures.
However, because of Covid-19 we have made significant changes to ensure the safety of candidates and our staff.
Access to Aviation House is currently strictly controlled. Capacity limitations are in place for both CAA staff and visitors.
Unauthorised access is not permitted.
The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) conducts electronic examinations (e-Exams) for (Part-66) professional Aircraft Maintenance Licences.

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.
To maintain the integrity and effectiveness of the examination content.
Candidates are able to make comments during an examination.
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 a comprehensive investigation into the accuracy and integrity of examination content and materials delivered to the candidate during a specific test.
The full examination review fee should be paid by the candidate at the time of request , which is fully refundable if an error is found and the candidate marks are adjusted accordingly.
The CAA endeavours to complete this service within 10 working days of receipt of the request. A message notification, explaining the findings and closing actions will be added to the 'User Messages' area in the candidate e-Exam portal.
