Before registering for the official FOCA theory examination, you will take so-called final tests at the flight school. The final tests are computer-based and multiple choice - just like the FOCA examination. The FOCA theory exams are regularly held in Ittigen near Bern. 

*The ATPL theory can be taken in the variants ATPL/VFR and ATPL/IR. The latter variant contains the entire instrument flight theory. The subject 092 "IR-Communications" is added, which is missing in the ATPL/VFR variant. Deeper IR material also complements other subjects such as instrumentation and radio navigation.
