    Short answer is not automatically.  FAR 61.56 para c provides for the use of “pilot proficiency checks” as substitution for a BFR.  Note that the rule does not say “instructor” proficiency checks.  Having said all that, it might be possible for the examiner to allow for the flight to accomplish both, at his or her option.  This would have to be arranged for in advance of the practical test however.

    The better way to handle this is to have the CFI that did your training to sign off the BFR as you will do lots of flying together. The checkride itself doesn’t count as it’s a teaching certificate and not a new pilot certifiacte.
