Does the FAA have a formal process to allow applicants and instructors to appeal a DPE who does not conduct pilot examinations in a manner consistent with the ACS/PTS guidelines?

If yes, how does the process work?

    $\begingroup$ Contact your local FSDO. Keep in mind that the aviation community is very tightly knit. Have all of your evidence ready when you approach the FSDO. If it becomes a matter of he-said she-said the DPE will likely face no action. If you can prove the DPE did something wrong you will likely destroy the DPE's reputation and end their career. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Based on the little bit of time I spend researching this myself, it appears as if the FAA has some sort of complaint hotline. $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 2, 2019 at 5:57
