The FAA recently instituted regulatory policy changes wherein recurrent drone testing will be replaced with online recurrent training beginning April 6, 2021.  In accordance with this policy change, the FAA is eliminating the Unmanned General – Recurrent (UGR) exam.  The last exam administration date for the UGR will be Monday April 5, 2021.

 

The exam administration platform (ATLAS Aviation) has been configured accordingly to blackout any testing dates beyond April 5, 2021.  Thus, applicants are unable to schedule for UGR exam administration dates after April 5, 2021.

Effective April 1, 2021, the national retail price for all FAA Airman Knowledge Test (AKT) exams will be $173.
