Federal Aviation Administration Certifications

The OSU Testing Center is a PSI Services Testing Center, offering a wide variety of certification exams for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The following is a list of some of the most common FAA certifications offered at the OSU Testing Center:

  • Private/Recreational
  • Commercial
  • Instrument
  • Flight Instructor
  • Airline Transport
  • Flight Engineer
  • Mechanic/Rigger

The number of questions and the time allotted for a test varies greatly from test to test. Most licenses/ratings require a specific amount of flight time, instruction received, and the passing of a flight test.

ID Requirements

Applicants must have a valid, current photo ID that includes the applicant's date of birth, signature, and physical, residential address to take any FAA exam.

U.S. citizens are required to present one form of photo ID meeting the requirements above.  If the ID presented does not include a current address, a second form of applicant address verification must be presented. 

Non-U.S. citizens must present a valid, current passport and a driver permit or license issued by a U.S. state or territory or an identification card issued by any government entity.  This second ID must meet the requirements listed above.  If the passport and second ID do not include a current address, a third form of applicant address verification must be presented. 

Log books or sign off sheets with endorsements may also be required depending on the certification exam taken.  Please note that ID requirements are subject to change and can be different depending on the certification exam, so applicants should contact the OSU Testing Center at 405-744-5958 for the current ID requirements for each FAA certification exam.

Applicant Address Verification

If an address listed on an ID used to take the exam is NOT current, an applicant must bring another form of address verification that displays the applicants name and current address on it. Some common examples of applicant address verification include: public utility statements (electric, gas, or water, but NOT cable), mortgage or lease agreements, property tax bills/receipts/deeds, homeowners/renters insurance statements, vehicle registration, voter registration cards, pilot's licenses, etc.
