    Title: Airman Knowledge Test Registration Collection.
    Form Numbers: There are no forms associated with this collection.
    Type of Review: New information collection.
    Background: The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment
period soliciting comments on the following collection of information
was published on October 22, 2019 (84 FR 56520). Individuals pursuing
an FAA certificate or rating to operate in the National Airspace System
(NAS) must meet the standards established in the FAA regulations
specific to the certificate sought by the individual. FAA certification
requires that an individual must successfully pass an Airman Knowledge
Test as part of the requirements to obtain an FAA certificate or
rating. The FAA develops and administers 90 different knowledge tests
in many different areas that are required as part of the overall airman
certification process.
    Airman Knowledge Tests are administered at approved Knowledge
Testing Centers by an approved test proctor who is required to
administer the appropriate Airman Knowledge Test to the individual
pursuing FAA certification. Individuals taking an FAA Airman Knowledge
Test must provide the following information to be collected in order to
complete the registration process before the administration of the
Airman Knowledge Test: Name, FAA Tracking Number (FTN), physical
address, Date of Birth, email address, photo identification, phone
number, test authorization (credentials of the individual such as an
instructor endorsement), and previous number of test attempts.
    The information provided by the individual is collected and stored
electronically in the application used for test registration and
delivery. This information is used to determine the identify and
eligibility of the individual for compliance of FAA certification
requirements.
    Respondents: 150,000 annually.
    Frequency: n/a.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 2 minutes.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 5,000 hours annually; 150,000
respondents x 2 minutes each = 300,000 minutes; 300,000 minutes/60
minutes in an hour = 5,000 hours annually.
    Issued in Oklahoma City, OK, on October 17, 2019.

Airman Knowledge Testing Program Manager, Airman Testing Standards
Branch (AFS-630).
