CPL online exams - Cape Town

Unread post by V5 - LEO » Tue Oct 08, 2019 10:56 am

...good day, anyone that can confirm that the venue in Cape Town is now open to write exams (CPL) all day during the week - Sundays excl?

...in essence then, exams can be written for the next six weeks to complete requirements - also what is the cooling period and marks? Any / all help appreciated???

Victorfife.... There could be two scenarios here one which is recent development. That is the exam center at the CAA offices at FACT but I'm not sure if they are complete and running yet.

The other is the old fashion way which is via the CAA outstation program and which only comes to CPT once a month and uses a venue in Sea Point to facilitate the exams. For this you also need to pre register per exam.

...txs multi, as I understood it is a very recent development concerning the Sea Point office. Will read through the link as the once a month thingy is not going to cut it this time round. Txs sgain.

Welcome

The sea point gig has been around for some time. Unless the CAA have completed their exam center at their CPT office and I'm almost completely sure they have not then you only have two options. 1: the Sea Point out station once a month or 2: Travel to Midrand and write there

Fantastic I was hopping that was the news out of this. If you were a few weeks back you would have very little choice other than Midrand or once a month in Sea Point
