An airman applicant may present one or more of the following acceptable forms of authorization for ALL tests listed above:

  • Original FAA Form 8610-2, Airman Certificate and/or Rating Application.

    • NOTE 1: Proctor should verify that applicable blocks are marked (in upper left corner of form). Those not applicable will have a line drawn through them. (Example located in FAA Order 8080.6, Appendix.) If either or both the Airframe and Powerplant boxes are checked on the FAA Form 8610-2, along with the 'Original Issuance' box (and NOT the 'Added Rating' box), this serves as authorization for the Aviation Mechanic General (AMG) test. DO NOT ACCEPT AN "ORIGINAL ISSUANCE" APPLICATION FOR AN AMG TEST ONLY. (If the 'Added Rating' box is marked, this indicates that the AMG test is NOT required.)

    • NOTE 2: Proctor should ensure block V is completed, including date, inspector's original signature, and FAA Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) identifier. (A sample form is located in Order 8080.6, Appendix.)

    • NOTE 3: The applicant must retain both original 8610-2 forms issued by the FSDO. The proctor must make a copy of the form and attach it to the applicable daily log (refer to Order 8080.6, 'Test Procedures-General' Chapter); or, if the testing center is approved for electronic filing, the proctor must file the form electronically in accordance with (IAW) their Airman Knowledge Testing (AKT) Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) Holder's Procedures Manual.

  • Certificate of graduation or completion from an FAA-certificated Aviation Maintenance Technician School (AMTS).

    • NOTE 1: The proctor must ensure the certificate includes the AMTS name and certificate number, graduation date, curriculum from which the applicant graduated, applicant name, and signature of an authorized school official.

    • NOTE 2: The proctor must ensure the applicant is only allowed the test(s) authorized on the certificate.

    • NOTE 3: The proctor must make a legible photocopy of the certificate presented at the time of applicant processing, and attach this copy to the applicable daily log; or, if the testing center is approved for electronic filing, the proctor must file the certificate electronically IAW their AKT ODA Holder's Procedures Manual. The proctor must return the original certificate to the applicant.

  • Military Certificate of Eligibility.

    • NOTE 1: The proctor must ensure the applicant is only allowed the test(s) authorized on the certificate; and that the test date does not precede the certificate date. (A sample certificate is located in Order 8080.6, Appendix.)

    • NOTE 2: The proctor must make a legible photocopy of the certificate presented at the time of applicant processing, and attach this copy to the applicable daily log; or, if the testing center is approved for electronic filing, the proctor must file the certificate electronically IAW their AKT ODA Holder's Procedures Manual. The proctor must return the original certificate to the applicant.

Acceptable form of authorization for AMG (ONLY for applicants attending exempted AMTSs):

  • Evidence of authorization to take the general test based on the school having an exemption issued under 14 CFR part 11 to § 65.75(a).

Acceptable forms of retest authorization for ALL tests listed above:

  • Original passing Airman Knowledge Test Report (AKTR).

  • Original expired AKTR.

  • Original failed AKTR.

    • NOTE 1: Requires a 30-day waiting period for retesting if the applicant presents a failed AKTR, but no authorized instructor endorsement.

    • NOTE 2: Retests do not require a 30-day waiting period if the applicant presents a signed statement from an airman holding the certificate and rating(s) sought by the applicant. This statement must certify that the airman has given the applicant additional instruction in each of the subjects failed, and that the airman considers the applicant ready for retesting.

    • NOTE 3: An applicant retesting AFTER FAILURE is required to submit the applicable AKTR indicating failure to the testing center prior to retesting.

      • The original failed AKTR must be retained by the proctor and attached to the applicable daily log.

        • If the testing center is approved for electronic filing, the proctor must: initial the AKTR within the embossed seal; file the AKTR IAW their AKT ODA Holder's Procedures Manual; verify the original failed AKTR has been successfully captured and stored prior to destruction; and destroy the AKTR.
