14 CFR 61.317 - Is my sport pilot certificate issued with aircraft category and class ratings?

Beta! The text on the eCFR tab represents the unofficial eCFR text at ecfr.gov.
§ 61.317 Is my sport pilot certificate issued with aircraft category and class ratings?

Your sport pilot certificate does not list aircraft category and class ratings. When you successfully pass the practical test for a sport pilot certificate, regardless of the light-sport aircraft privileges you seek, the FAA will issue you a sport pilot certificate without any category and class ratings. The FAA will provide you with a logbook endorsement for the category and class of aircraft in which you are authorized to act as pilot in command.
