Default Ministry RPG Apparition Testing - NEW and IMPROVED!

Hey guys! I hope you all enjoyed the Ministry orientation - now that the Ministry is OPEN, I have a very cool and important announcement!

Now, I know this hasn't been very well publicized in the past, but if your school character did not participate in the Apparition Class at Hogwarts, they could come test in the Ministry. As I said, this was not very well publicized so if you never got a chance to test your character, you're in luck, because we've redone the ENTIRE Apparition system!

Testing in the School
-Testing in the school will occur every 3 IC terms (so once every calendar year) This will occur during the WINTER term. So if your RPG character is a 6th or 7th year during those terms, you'll be eligible to play in the Apparition lessons during this time.

However if your character ISN'T in that age range during that time, you can still test to get your apparition license by attending a course at the Ministry of Magic!

Testing in the Ministry
There are three times licenses may be issued in the Ministry:
-During the IC "breaks" for Christmas, Easter, etc. (Please note that most of the time, the Minsitry will be closed during the Christmas break IC for sorting!)
-During the IC "summer break" when DA is open/sorting is open
-Any time after a character has graduated Hogwarts

The only characters who may test at the Ministry are characters who are a. 17 years of age or older and b.will NOT be of age/turning of age during the Winter Term (when apparition lessons will be taking place) It's just silly to have those who ARE turning of age during the Apparition term come to the Ministry when they can just, you know, stay at school...

How do I go about testing?
It is very easy to go about testing in the Ministry!

1. Please arrive at the Department of Magical Transportation and please bring your wand. This will be used to identify you and assure you are old enough for testing. No appointment is necessary although there may be a small wait time depending on how many testers having arrived before you.

2. An apparition instructor will arrive and take you to a small "classroom" where you will engage in a 1 hour condensed apparition course. You will immediately take the written portion of the exam. You will be given TWO tries to pass the test. If you fail twice, you will be sent home and cannot come back to try again for at least 30 days*. Once you have passed the written portion, you will be allowed time to practice (up to 2 hours of supervised practice) *In OOC terms, this means you won't be able to retest for a week/you'll get about 48 hours of practice time in the classroom thread to RP your character practicing.

3. You will then be given the practical exam. If you pass, you'll be issued your license!

4. You CAN take the written exam/class and then return home to practice apparition in your own home. HOWEVER, a signed document MUST be obtained and issued by an instructor giving you permission to apparate in your home, and you will be monitored to assure you do not leave the premises without a license. You can then return at a later date and take the practical portion to receive your license (within 30 business days) Plenties for leaving an approved apparition testing area without a license can be anything from a fine to possible time in Azkaban depending on the offense. OOC: This is for people who have threads for their characters in the Vanishing Cabinet RPG forum and want to RP practicing there! You will ONLY be allowed to practice apparition in these threads and yes, we will be watching!

5. If you have successfully completed a previous Apparition class at Hogwarts, you only need to take the Practical and Written exams. You do NOT need to take the class again (provided you have sufficient proof and paperwork showing that you did, in fact, complete the apparition course!) OOC: By "sufficient proof" I mean link me to the posts of your character RPing in the Apparition lesson!

6. As of this moment, if you have successfully passed the Apparition exam and received your license, you do NOT need to retest/renew your license at any time. It's good for life! OOC: However, if another character of yours wants to get a license, you will need to retake the test!

As I said, your character will no longer need to worry about when their license "expires". When you've got your license, you're set for life! Unless of course you commit a crime or something IC and Transportation needs to confiscate it from you

I know this is a lot to take in, so if you have ANY questions at all, you may ask them here or PM me, Lissy Longbottom. Otherwise, if your character is just itching to get their license, head over to Level 6 whenever you'd like!

Due to the fact that testing requires a questionnaire that must be graded by a moderator AND the insertion of your apparition license by an admin, we on Level 6 reserve the right to turn away applicants if we have too many people ahead of you. Don't worry, we aren't going anywhere, you should be able to try again in a few days if this happens to you! Just let us catch up first!

Yes! I believe we consider THIS term the Fall term, next term is Winter, and then we have Summer. To simplify, the class will be held January - February of each calendar year OOC

Ohhhhhh I will definitely be having my Ministry Charrie do it! I did try and RP her getting it but then I think the Christmas break came in between and I didn't get a response so I don't know if she has got the license or no

Haha in a perfect world it would be like that BUT since it takes two separate lessons to test - the actual practice lesson and then another, separate testing date, we discussed it and seemed it would be best to do it just once a calendar year.

And now you have the Ministry to do it in so YAY!

This is the perfect thing for Asilin to do in her last year at hogwarts. It's too bad I cant have both her and her sister get their licences at the same time. Oh well, I guess Asilin will have to get hers at school and Madison (who will probably be the oldest one there) will get hers at the Ministry

Yeah I'm fine with it... If it were in Hogwarts it would just be another thing I have to remember... And I am not good with remembering things!!!!

Yeah these slackers workers in the Ministry need more work XD
