FAA Part 107 Exam Registration

Steps for getting signed up for the FAA Part 107 Exam

This page details how to sign up for your FAA Exam, which you need to do in order to obtain your Part 107 drone pilot’s license. While this sounds like a simple task, bouncing from site-to-site and wading through unfamiliar verbiage can add unnecessary stress to your pre-exam experience. We've gone through this process already and would like to save you the hassle, so you can spend more time actually studying.

Link to get Started

First, go to the FAA Exam login. Assuming you’re a new flyer, go to the create an account section here: faa.psiexams.com



The first box on this screen is for returning pilots only. We are doing this as new users, therefore only the boxes after the first are relevant. Once filled out, you can click ‘register’.



You now have your very own FAA tracking number! Although you’ll get digital confirmation, it doesn’t hurt to write this down somewhere safe for your records.

Now, you can return to the exam eligibility page, where you’ll enter your new FAA tracking number, first and last name, and hit ‘continue’.


Exam Signup

Now, read through the usage acknowledgement and hit ‘accept’ when you’re done. From there, you’ll be prompted to enter your email and create a username and password.

Once completed, head over to your corresponding email inbox to verify the account.

The verification will take you to a new page, where you’ll enter your date of birth, phone number, city, state, postal code, country, citizenship status, and military status. Once that information is entered your FAA account registration is complete. Which means now we can schedule the exam.

You’ll be taken to a new page to select the exam you want to take. Scroll all the way down to Unmanned Aircraft General - Small (UAG) and hit select.

Once there, read through the information and confirm the pre exam data collection by filling in the number of exam attempts and authorization category.

You can select whether or not you need accommodation for your exam on this page as well.

Exam Scheduling

Now, you will be prompted to schedule your exam. This page also includes information on the scheduling procedures and allowed materials list, which I would recommend reading before choosing a date range. Once reviewed, you can enter your location, preferred dates, and distance radius.

You will be provided with a list of options based on the parameters you entered. You could have multiple options from small to large airports, or testing centers.

For example: I took my exam at a middle-sized airport, and they gave me earbuds in case the sound of landing jets bothered me. If you’re sensitive to certain environments, I would recommend calling the testing location ahead of time to gather their thoughts. From there, you can pick whichever option best fits your schedule and gives you a comfortable amount of time to review for the exam.


The final stage is payment. Once paid for, your exam will be scheduled and you’ll receive an email confirmation!
