Private pilot written exam

(Denise Robinson) #1

Can you take the written exam before you get flight hours? I only have 1 from my discovery flight. If so, is there a time frame between passing written exam to taking practical exam?

You can take the written exam at any point in time that you’re ready to take it and have your instructor’s endorsement to do so (or one from a prep course like King’s Schools). After you take the exam, the results are valid for 24 months.
