Private pilot written test

Is it true you should take your pp written test befor you start your flight lessons or if not then when should you take the pp written exam

If you can yes take it before. Written tests are good for 2 years from when you take them.

If you are going to ATP and have the time they entice you to take the PAR, IRA and CAX by giving you your money back for the Basic ForeFlight if you pass all 3 before starting.

The mentors suggest if possible taking all of the written tests so they are out of the way and you can focus on flying.

We recommend people take their writtens before training with ATP due to the intensity of the accelerated program. If you’re doing your flight training at a local flight school more casually you can take it anytime prior to you practical exam.
