The Test

In Florida you are not required to have a sponsor before you take the state falconry exam. In fact, it is often recommended that you get your test out of the way before attempting to find a sponsor.

How Do I Prepare?

The test is relatively simple. It’s a 100 question multiple choice exam that covers the basics of raptor identification, biology, health, and classification as well as the state regulations.

Here are a list of materials that will help you prepare for the exam. Of course, these are no substitute for getting out in the field with falconers and learning first hand.
