What you need to bring to the exam session:

  3. Test fee, CASH ONLY, exact amount (correct change please): $5 for everyone *** Any attempt at the next higher class (ex. Pass Tech and want to try the General exam) will now cost $5. The cost to retake a failed exam will cost $5.
  4. Any current CSCEs that have not yet shown up in the FCC database.
  5. Your FCC Registration Number (FRN). You MUST apply for an FRN at the FCC website at least one week ahead of the exam session you plan to attend. The FCC no longer accepts Social Security Numbers for initial licensing. More information is located here: How to get a FRN Number

Calculators: Non-programmable calculators are allowed. Programmable calculators are NOT ALLOWED unless their memories can be cleared or reset at the exam session site by the testing crew prior to the start of the exam. The decision as to whether a calculator will be allowed to be used rests with the Chief Volunteer Examiner/Session Manager and that decision is final.

Cell phone/tablet Calculator Apps will not be used. ​ Cell Phones, Tablets and other Personal Electronic Devices: These devices will be placed on "silent" or turned off and removed from the examinee's position prior to the start of the exam.

Special Needs Accommodation: If you cannot take the exam in its standard written form, or at our regular location, we will do our absolute best to provide an alternative testing situation. However, please be advised that we probably will NOT be able to accommodate you on a walk-in basis at one of our regular test sessions. Please contact us ahead of the exam session you plan to attend and we will work out a plan to offer you an exam session that takes your needs into account.​

We look forward to serving you and being a positive part of your amateur radio experience. Please feel to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
