    The title of your post suggests something different than the text in your post.

    There is a procedure to convert a Canadian ATP to an FAA ATP and vice versa.
    There is no procedure in place that I am aware of to convert an EASA ATP to an FAA ATP.

    As far as the knowledge (written) test is concerned, i don’t believe you can receive any credit towards the FAA test by having passed the EASA test. On the plus side, since you have studied that material, it should still be fresh in your mind.

    One word of caution. See the current version of 61.39(a).
    If you take the ATP knowledge test prior to August 1, 2014, the score will be good for 24 months.

    If you take it after July 31, 2014, it will be good for 60 months, however you will need to complete an ATP certification training program prior to taking the knowledge test. The training program will require you to complete 10 hours of simulator training which will increase the cost dramatically.
