How do I get ready?


  1. Prep: We recommend either a home study course or working with an instructor 1 on 1 for dedicated tutoring to get ready for any written knowledge test.

  2. Schedule: Check with BFC for dates of availability to take your exam. An instructor can readily help with this step. Then, go to https://faa.psiexams.com/faa/login and pick the date and time that worked for you and the test proctors. 

  3. Take the test: Get that high score! results over 70% are passing, and if you need to retest for a higher score you need to wait 30 days and bring the original score report with you. 

What does it cost?

The average cost is around $150 per test attempt, but for the most up to date pricing see the list after creating your account on PSI's website. https://faa.psiexams.com/faa/login
