Part 107 Test Prep FAQs

What is Part 107? Why do I need it? How do I get it?

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. The cost to take the exam is $150, paid to the testing center. DARTdrones does not offer locations to take the exam, but it’s really easy to book it at one of the FAA’s 690 testing centers across the country. Once you pass the exam, you get your certificate within a few weeks and are able to fly commercially.

How long is the Part 107 Test Prep course?

The in-person 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. All students gain access to our online Part 107 Test Prep course so that they can continue to study and complete multiple practice tests.

After I complete the Part 107 Test Prep course, will I be ready to take my exam?

Although we cover all of the content that you will need to study for the test, many students want to spend study time with our online Part 107 Test Prep course, especially the practice tests. We recommend not booking your exam until after you complete our class and feel ready.

How long do I have access to the online Part 107 Test Prep course?

You will have access to the online Part 107 Test Prep course for six months. This should be plenty of time to take the in-person class, continue to study online, take all the practice tests, and pass the Airman Knowledge Test.

I am new to drones. Is this course relevant for my drone use?

This course is designed for drone pilots who aim to use their drone for business purposes and want to pass the 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. 

What is the typical class size?

We limit the class to 15 students.

Will the instructor from my in-person training be available if I have questions during the online class?

For any online course questions, students are directed to our Chief Pilot who built the curriculum and can help you find the right answer.

What if the class isn't offered in my city? What if the class in my city is sold out?

We typically schedule one class per month in each city about 10-12 weeks in advance of a class. If your city is completely sold out, we recommend checking a nearby city, organizing a private group lesson (priced for 8 participants), or submitting a contact form as we do often have last minute cancellations.

How can I prepare prior to taking the course?

Once you sign up for the course, we will send you access to our online portal. It is pre-loaded with pre-course materials. You can browse the materials at your convenience. However, our course is designed to help you pass the test even without any prior aviation knowledge.
