2019 License Exam Schedule

The first VE exam session of the year will be on January 29 at 6:00 pm at the Main Library at 7711 Goodwood Blvd.
Please plan to arrive by 5:45 PM if you are planning to take an Exam with our Volunteer Examiner Team. The exam fee is $15.
If upgrading, bring a copy of your current license that will be submitted with your application by the VE Team.

To take a test, candidates need to bring the following:

  • Pencil(s)
  • $15 check made out to ARRL VEC  (We prefer checks, but will also accept cash.)
  • Photo ID
  • Copy of your current FCC license or CSCE (for those upgrading)
  • Calculator – This is optional and you must be able to demonstrate that the memories are blank.

Test time is 6:00 pm; plan to arrive by 5:45 pm. These test sessions occur once a quarter and are held at 6:00 pm.

In addition, we recommend, if you are taking your first test, that you register with the FCC and get your FRN number.  This can be used on the forms instead of using your Social Security number.  You can register here.
