Starting this year, the FAA (https://www.faa.gov/) is requiring UAVs Remote Pilots to get certified: https://www.faa.gov/uas/getting_started/fly_for_work_business/becoming_a_pilot/
Exams need to be taken at any of the certified test centers https://3dr.com/faa/drone-test-centers/ and you will have 2 hours to answer 63 / 65 questions. You need 70% of them correctly answered to approval.
You have several resources to prepare in the FAA site and we also recommend you to check it out:
3DR Site - FAA Part 107 - Remote Drone Pilot License Resources
Questions to practice the tests:
You will notice that questions are around Regulation, Weather, Aerial Space and Common Sense J
Weather – Metar and TAF
After you complete the exam you need to register in the IACRA site and follow the last steps for the process. Mainly filling an application for the Remote Pilot License.
If all is good, after they approve you will be a UAS Certified Pilot. Good Luck!
