I called my local FAA test center to see what the process was for scheduling. They gave me some good info and apparently are very flexible with being able to get people to administer the test after normal business hours as they are a flight school at an airport and tend to have people available. One thing that did catch me a bit off guard was the costs. So they said that the test was about $160 (which is fine) but that there was also a lot of stuff that needed to get handled with IACRA for another $100 and then something else was another $100. Unfortunately I don't remember what the the second part was but it was something to do with the issuing of the license/certificate. Does that sound right? I got the impression that those were add-on services they provided to expedite the process. I didn't want to start asking too many questions prior to passing the exam. I was under the impression that the majority of the costs would be the test and then some nominal fee for the actual license itself (it only costs $2 to reissue a lost one).
