To qualify for an exam, you must meet the authorization/endorsement and identification criteria established by the FAA and PSI:
FOR US CITIZENS/RESIDENT ALIENS:
Identification must include an official photograph, date of birth, signature, and physical/residential address. All government IDs must be current, original, and printed in English. Valid IDs include a US driver's license, US government ID card, passport, US military ID card, or alien residency card.
FOR NON-US CITIZENS/NON-RESIDENT ALIENS:
Candidates who are not US citizens or resident aliens must present a passport and a secondary ID, which must follow the guidelines listed above under "US citizens."
Candidates who do not meet identification requirements will not be able to test and must reschedule.
Endorsements and Authorizations
If you are a BSU student, 141.95 Certificates of Graduation from the BSU Aviation Department are valid for 60 days beyond date of graduation. Students with an out-of-date 141.95 Certificate of Graduation will be asked to reschedule.
NOTE: An applicant retesting AFTER FAILURE is required to submit the original failed test report indicating failure, along with an endorsement from an authorized instructor who gave the applicant the required additional training. The endorsement must certify the applicant is competent to pass the test. If you no longer possess the original test report, you may present an "expired test/credit" letter issued by AFS-760.
Candidates who do not meet authorization requirements will not be able to test and must reschedule.
