Following is copy/paste from FAA site. You need to create an FAA account & sign in to get started.
I'm not sure what happens if you fail the exam. Instant retake? Wait period? Not sure.
Part 107 sUAS Initial –Part 61 Pilots Introduction
The FAA has developed regulations to allow the operation of small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) in the National Airspace System (NAS) for purposes other than limited recreational use. The rules are specified in 14 CFR part 107 and address UAS classification, certification, and operating rules.
This training is designed for part 61 pilot certificate holders who have a current flight review (in accordance with 14 CFR § 61.56) and wish to obtain a part 107 remote pilot certificate with an sUAS rating. References to “part 61 pilot certificate holders” specifically refer to holders of pilot certificates other than student pilot certificates. Part 61 pilot certificates include sport pilot, recreational pilot, private pilot, commercial pilot and air transport pilot certificates.
As a certificated pilot, much of what you already know about manned aircraft applies to the operation of small unmanned aircraft. This training assumes the learner has operational knowledge of 14 CFR part 61, Certification: Pilots, Flight Instructors, and Ground Instructors, and 14 CFR part 91, General Operating and Flight Rules. The training focuses on the knowledge areas of 14 CFR part 107 that are beyond the operational knowledge of parts 61 and 91.
Others may take this training as a self-study resource, including:
Applicants for a part 107 remote pilot certificate who do not hold a part 61 pilot certificate (or part 61 pilot certificate holders who do not meet the requirements of a current flight review or other provisions of 14 CFR § 61.56)
Anyone interested in learning more about 14 CFR part 107

You will open the training on the next page. It will take approximately 2 hours to complete.
When you complete the training, you will return to this website. View the Reference Materials page, Glossary page, and Review page to enable the Exam button.
The multiple-choice online end-of-training knowledge check (exam) must be completed in a single session. If the exam is not completed and graded in 90 minutes or less, you will need to retake the entire exam when you log into the training again.
Note: If you have difficulty reaching the Review and/or Exam sections after viewing the training, please go to your account on FAASafety.gov, log in, go to your Courses In Progress page (located under the Courses link under the Activities, Courses & Seminars tab), and click on Continue. If the Review and/or Exam buttons are "grayed out", be sure each of the previous chapter buttons are completed by clicking on each in turn.
