You must register via a GMDSS examination centre.
The practical exam takes place on the equipment used by the candidate during his or her training. There is a €70,46 registration fee, which is non-refundable. In case of an annulment more than one week before the exam or upon presentation of a medical certificate, the registration fee can be moved to another date.
To pass the exam one has to score 50% for each subject and 60% in total. An exemption is granted for the parts for which the candidate scored 70%.
