There is no set speed. You can have a crib sheet and go as slow as you want. It is virtually nothing and you mainly have to show that you have an 'understanding' of Morse, what ever that means to the particular instructor.

There is no morse test based on sending speed . This has been replaced by a 'morse appreciation test' as part of the foundation exam . you only have to write the message down onto a crib sheet and then 'translate it' .
Afterwards you send a chosen message at any speed which is checked by the examiner

When I took mine, I had a sheet with the letters and numbers clearly marked. My examiner went so slowly I was easily able to get the code Remember that it's not really a morse test it is designated the Morse Appreciation evaluation in the foundation syllabus. It's only designed to show you understand what morse is and how it works.
