The first step to taking an RAC exam is to review the respective RAC Candidate Guide, which contains all the information you could need about the exam in a single pdf document. Confirming that you have read the Candidate Guide and understand the information contained within is part of the RAC exam application process.
In order to take the RAC exam, you must register for an exam window. The exams are offered in three testing windows throughout the year, in the spring, summer and autumn.
