English Proficiency Test
Candidates with English as a second language who will be applying for their initial pilot license in Canada may be required to undertake an English language proficiency test sometime before their license is issued. This is usually arranged by your flight instructor and will most likely be administered by telephone with the examiner at a cost of $50 to $100. Candidates who have English endorsed on their foreign license will not require an English proficiency assessment.
