Well I'm screwed. Had a javascript error during the test, and now PSI says they cant reschedule me because all the slots are full..hopefully they can get it figured out because failing to take the test because of their technical issue would suck.

IIRC, last years bid had a number of peoples tests crash and they were able to reschedule with little to no problem.

As ChuckMastaT said, you're not the only one. I came in the morning of my test and the administrator said they had issues the previous day with tests and rescheduled them according to FAA guidelines. I'm sure the FAA would work with you if there's been issues with their tests as long as you show you've tried rescheduling

Yeah I had issues last year too but I guess because the window is so short to take the test, PSI said that they will not able to reschedule me because all the slots are full. I called 2 different people. They currently have a ticket in to ask the facility for permission for me to retest..

Kinda wondering if I should call the number for atsa remedy with the FAA.

I would and let them know. What's your next closest PSI facility? I know some people here are driving at least 4 hours to a testing center because their closest one is closed. It's an option because I have a feeling the FAA will tell you to test elsewhere

Salt Lake City. I have to drive 6 hours to Denver for the closest testing facility that has a open seat. I am going to give it a couple days and if PSI doesn't let me retest at SLC then I guess I will have to drive to Denver.

I had the same issue at that testing center today. Really hoping I don't have to drive to Denver as it's an 8 hour drive for me but still the closest one with availability.

Hopefully I see you post that they worked something out. I'll be trying to contact PSI in the morning.

Wait, it was YOU last year too? Man, maybe its a sign.... kidding of course

All jokes aside, I think the testing window is open until June 13th? So there is still time to get a resolution. I would send an email to the ATSA Remedy email we got a few weeks ago or call the number at the bottom of it.

No need to worry, everything is gonna be alllllright.

You the airforce guy or one of the other two off the streeters? I'll let you know, tho. The first PSI lady told me that I was SOL lol..I was like, lady what? It wasn't my fault that there was a computer issue, you can't possibly tell me there is nothing you can do if it was your systems fault. Second lady said that she would call the department that asks permission for retakes and get back to me.

Anyone able to take the test with strict in-state covid restrictions? Less than 10 people? Masks? Social distancing in effect? I’m in LA and I have very little to no hope I’ll be able to test on my scheduled date of June 5. I went to reschedule yesterday in another less restricted state and there were no dates available anymore. I know there are going to be later dates to test in per the latest PSI email but I’d rather get this done now. Anyone want to give me some hope? or should I expect a cancel email soon?

I was in the afternoon session and I'm guessing you were in the morning one. I am an off the streeter though. All 6 of us in the afternoon session had the same problem.

I know it sucks but at least I feel better that we all had issues today cause they can't deny all of us lol. There was 4 of us this morning.

Just finished my test. Got wrecked on the reading parts due to time and prolly cause I suck, did pretty alright on the test.

Test crashed twice after difference and variable games, proctor called someone up. Had to redo those parts once which sucked

I emailed ATSA remedy and they said that if I am unable to test this testing window, I will be able to test in the next testing window in several months from now but my test score will roll over for this testing window.

From my understanding, that means there are two tries within this bid. Not sure how I feel about waiting for the next testing period, hopefully PSI helps me out.

My wife took hers yesterday in Bellevue, WA. I wonder if they're going to wait until everyone finished the test before they tell people their results. Because it's sounding like some people could get pushed back a few months.

Nah people in the last bid had their test results back while some didn't even take the test yet
