All sport pilot applicants must take a 40 question multiple-choice test and score 70% or better. The sport pilot knowledge test is the same for all categories of light-sport aircraft. The FAA will test specific aircraft category questions during the oral portion of the practical test conducted by the sport pilot examiner. The FAA has approved two test providers LaserGrade and CATS. The test must be taken at an approved test location. Both LaserGrade and CATS have franchised hundreds of test locations around the country. The FAA has published a sample of the test questions you can expect to see on the 40-question test. Here is a link to view sample knowledge test questions.
