THE FAA KNOWLEDGE TEST

If you are to take your checkride soon you will need to be sure that you complete a FAA Knowledge test. Once you pass the knowledge test with a 70% or higher it is valid up to 2 years from when you have completed it. If you haven't taken your checkride within those 2 years you will have to take the test again.
