You have 18 months in which to complete all nine exams from the end of the month that you have attempted your first exam, and once all exams have been completed, you then have 24 months from this date in which to successfully pass your PPL skills test.

You attempt each exam up to three times but all nine exams must be completed in no more than '6 sittings' (a sitting has been defined as a period of ten days). In addition to these exams there is also a practical radio telephony test, conducted by an RT examiner in order for you to gain your radio license.
