FAQs

If a student completes our Part 107 Test Prep course and achieves a 85% or better on at least 3 practice exams and still fails the FAA Part 107 Exam, we will pay the retest fee for the student to take the exam again. All students taking the Online Part 107 Test Prep course must complete all of the course modules to 100% within 90 days prior to their exam date to be eligible. All students who took the in-person Part 107 Test Prep course must have taken the exam within the 90 days of their class date to be eligible OR have completed each of the online modules within 90 days of taking the exam. To qualify as completing the course modules includes the Night Operations Modules that were added to the course on March 1, 2021. For students who took the in-person course prior to the FAA rule change on March 1, 2021, they will only qualify for the Money Back Guarantee if they complete the Night Operations Course modules. FAA exam questions are not published. The DARTdrones question bank is closely aligned to what you will see on the FAA remote pilot exam, but wording can and will differ. Memorizing our entire question bank will not be sufficient preparation to pass the exam. Students who take the practice test an excessive number of times with unreasonably short completion times will not qualify for the guarantee. Students are only eligible to receive the Money Back Guarantee once. Students must submit their failing test scorecard to our support team for review.

DARTdrones is the leading nationwide drone training and is the first to offer an exclusive webinar answering any questions that you have about the FAA Part 107 Exam!  This interactive webinar will review any questions or concerns you have about the exam – an industry FIRST! Once a month, one of our instructors will invite all FAA Part 107 Test Prep students to join them in a review session. The instructor will answer any questions and review some of the most difficult questions in the exam.

Planning to fly a drone for commercial use?  You must have your FAA Part 107 Certification. In August of 2016, the FAA launched new rules for commercial drone pilots under the FAA regulations called Part 107. The new rules allow people interested in flying  their drones for a profit or commercial use to gain a license from the FAA to fly their drone for commercial purposes after passing a 60 question, 2 hour exam offered at an FAA testing center. (The old rules used to require a 333 exemption and a manned aircraft pilot’s license. This is no longer necessary.) Someone new to aviation could commit 15 – 20 hours of study time and be ready to pass their exam.After taking our Part 107 Test Prep course, you can book at one of the FAA’s 690 testing centers across the country to take your exam for $150. Once you pass the exam, you get your certificate within a few weeks and are able to fly commercially.

The in-person FAA Part 107 Test Prep Course is eight hours, usually from 8:30 a.m to 5:00 p.m with a 30 minute lunch break. By the time you leave our class, you will feel confident with the knowledge you gained from the class.   Still need more study time?  We’ve got you covered! All students gain access to our online Part 107  Test Prep course so that they can continue to study and complete multiple practice tests.  In addition, we are the first in the industry to offer exclusive webinars with our instructors for real-time answers you may have regarding your upcoming Part 107 exam.

Every student is different, so we recommend utilizing our online study guides just to make sure you’re ready for the exam.  Plus, if you take our FAA Part 107 Test Prep course and achieve a 90% or better on at least 3 practice exams, we will pay for you to take the exam again if you fail! 

You will have access to the online FAA Part 107 Test Prep course for six months. Don’t forget –  we offer online study guides, free webinars, AND contact with our chief pilot.  Our students rarely get close to the 6 month deadline.

This course is designed for drone pilots who aim to use their drone for business purposes and want to pass the FAA Part 107 Airman Knowledge Exam. If you are flying for fun as a recreational drone pilot, you do not need to pass the Airman Knowledge Exam.

We want to see our student succeed in passing the Part 107 exam.  We want you to learn as much as you can in our class, which is why we limit the class to 15 students!

DARTdrones offers access to our chief pilot for any questions you may have.  In addition, we have an interactive webinar that is offered with your Part 107 course.   This is an industry first!
