The new Private Pilot Licence (PPL) e-Exams online system, which replaces Part-FCL PPL aeroplane and helicopter paper-based theoretical knowledge exams, is now live.

This launch follows the successful completion of a three-month pathfinder phase where the system was tested with a number of volunteer pilot training organisations to ensure it was right for the General Aviation (GA) community. The PPL e-Exams delivered by the pathfinder phase were sat by real exam candidates and their exam passes will count towards their pilot licence issue.

Delivering service excellence and technological innovation to all stakeholders are key elements of the CAA’s Strategic Plan. This latest implementation forms part of that strategy.

Jim Marren, GA Pilot Training, Licensing & Policy Manager said, “Over recent months we have contacted all applicable pilot training organisations to inform them of the changes and detailing the actions required to be undertaken to use the new online PPL e-Exams system. We have engaged directly with 248 organisations and have now provided system access to them. We are asking any pilot training organisations who have not yet registered to do so.”

Training organisations can get more information on how to register for examinations on the CAA website. If organisations have not yet received login credentials, or if they have any other questions around the implementation, they can contact PPLExams@caa.co.uk
