Airplane pilots who would like a helicopter certificate, do not need a written test for the Private, Instrument or Commercial add-on. The flight training hour requirements are less, and since you are already a pilot, less ground school and helicopter lessons are required.
Pilots will not be required to take an additional written exam. International pilots, who have never taken a FAA written exam, will be required to do so, or a restriction will be placed on their FAA license.
