This identification number will be printed on the applicant’s Airman Knowledge Test Report (AKTR) in replacement of the Applicant ID number. If you already have an FTN you may use it when registering.  If you do not have an FTN, please register for an FTN in IACRA, applicants need to visit the IACRA Website by going IACRA  and following the instructions provided.

You must register and schedule your exam thru PSI. Once you have your FAA Tracking Number (FTN), go to PSI to register and schedule your test or call toll free, to schedule with a customer service representative, at (800) 947-4228.

Endorsements and Authorizations

It is the test candidates responsibility to have proper ID(s), authorizations, re-test authorizations, certificates, logbooks, and proof of residence if required. Be sure to refer to your PSI instructions concerning specific requirements, and flight tools that you may bring to the testing site. Before you schedule an exam, be sure to review the FAA guidelines for test authorization and be sure you have all the required documentation with you on your test date. 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.

NOTE: An applicant retesting AFTER FAILURE is required to submit the original failed test report indicating failure. Some tests require 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 login to the PSI website to print a duplicate.

Candidates who do not meet authorization requirements will not be able to test and must reschedule.
