I know many agencies that only have military surplus / non certificated aircraft. How do you handle a checkride for a rating? All the info I can find says the FAA will not allow this to be done in an OH58. Find a 206? Send them to Robby school which is 10 hours min just to meet the SFAR.

I think finding someplace to rent a 206 for a checkride is going to be your best bet. It's close enough to a 58 that minimal transition would be required, and certainly cheaper and easier than having to complete initial Robinson training just for a checkride. I'd check with some examiners in the area that have Bell 206 on their examiner authorization. I expect they have run into this situation before and can point you to a rental 206 they have used in the past.

Contact Randy Rowles at Helicopter Institute, he is an affiliate member, DPE, has a 206 and has done this many times for APSA members.

I should have thought of that Richard. That's why you're president.

Ben, I can highly recommend Randy and his team.
