As part of the one-time exam fee for the theoretical examination, you can take up to three times, but in subsequent approaches we only correct modules that have not been previously classified. The theoretical examination is passed only when the candidate for the UAVO operator obtains a score of at least 75% from each of the examination modules. After successfully passing the theoretical part, the candidate joins the practical part of the UAVO state examination.

If you have failed on the practical exam, you will receive an exam report from the examiner along with instructions that must be followed.
