Persons wishing to obtain a pilot licence or instrument rating are required to pass an official theory examination. Candidates must pass the theory examination before they can take the practical examination.
The flying school should send the enrolment form in an email marked “Registraion” to firstname.lastname@example.org

The theory exams must be successfully completed within 18 months (to the end of a calendar month). Candidates who took their first theory examinations before 20.03.2020 will receive an extension of three months based on the EASA COVID-19 exemption.
Once the last theory examination has been passed, candidates have 24 months to take the practical test for LAPL, PPL, BPL or SPL and 36 months to take the CPL and IR tests.
Changes to theory courses: ATPL, CPL and IR
The learning objectives (LOs) have been revised by EASA: old material has been removed, new material added, and LOs have been reassigned in some cases. These changes apply to courses and theory examinations for ATPL, CPL and IR.
In a transition phase from 31.07.2020 to 31.01.2022, FOCA theory examinations will be held in accordance with both the old and new LOs. After 31.01.2022, only the new LOs will apply. The only exception to this is for repeat examinations in subjects failed in exams taken for the first time before 31.01.2022. If the theory exam based on the old LOs cannot be completed by 31.01.2022, all outstanding parts must be taken in accordance with the new LOs. This change in syllabus may mean that candidates need to take extra theory courses. Furthermore, under the new syllabus the subject KSA100 must be taken before the final theory exam in the flight school.
