Later this year European Union private pilot licence theoretical
knowledge exams for aeroplanes and helicopters will be completed online via our
portal. The service will replace certain existing paper-based exams.
We will initially be undertaking a three-month pathfinder
phase with 20 training schools. We anticipate PPL e-Exams to be live for all training organisations in September or October. Closer to the time of implementation we will
be creating on-line accounts for you and sending your logon details directly.
If you have any questions around the implementation, or if you believe
we don’t have your current email address then please contact email@example.com
We also encourage you to direct your candidates that are
looking to take exams to first register for an account on our portal. Please see our guidance on the customer portal for more information.
When doing this they should select ‘Private pilot theoretical
knowledge e-exams’ as the service required. This registration has a short lead
time of a few days but needs only to be done once.
Training organisations and ground examiners with queries relating to
the new exam service should contact our exams team on 0330 022 1909. Alternatively, for queries relating to
registering with our portal should contact us on 0330 022 1972.
