Beginning Jan. 13, 2020, any applicant who wishes to take an FAA knowledge test will be required to possess an FAA Tracking Number (FTN).

The FTN is an 8-digit unique number assigned to each registered user in the FAA’s Integrated Airman Certification and Rating Application (IACRA) system.  To obtain an FTN in IACRA, applicants will need to register at iacra.faa.gov
