To qualify for an exam, you must meet the authorization/endorsement and identification criteria established by the FAA and PSI:

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.

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.

Before you schedule an exam, be sure to review the FAA guidelines for test authorization. Several exams require flight instructor endorsements. You can review the authorization requirements for your specific situation and exam by viewing the FAA's official authorization requirements matrix.
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 Students with an out-of-date 141.95 Certificate of Graduation will be asked to reschedule.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.
