    See 61.65 (a)(7). You are not required to take another knowledge test, as you already hold an instrument rating.

    (7) Pass the required knowledge test on the aeronautical knowledge areas of paragraph (b) of this section; however, an applicant is not required to take another knowledge test when that person already holds an instrument rating; and

    So no.
