Following the training, there is the opportunity to take the exam to become an official ISTQB Certified Automotive Tester. As with the ISTQB® Foundation Level, the exam lasts 60 minutes (40 questions multiple choice) and can be taken with or without prior training by the ISTQB-authorized certification bodies.

The exam is usually conducted as an electronic on-site exam by an independent certification body. You will receive your result in the electronic examination immediately after completion of the test. In addition to the participation fee, costs will be charged for participation in the exam. When booking online, you can also order the exam as an additional booking option! You can also book and take the exam directly at the accredited certification bodies, if you do not want to order them at the same time. In order to be allowed to take the exam, an ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level certification is required.
