A license exam session is scheduled for
Saturday, March 5, 2021, 10:oo am – 12 noon
at the East Baton Rouge Main Library, 7711 Goodwood Blvd, Baton Rouge, LA 70806, in the Technology Lab on the 2nd floor. If you want to take an exam for a new license or to upgrade an existing license, please register in advance at this page. Your registration will be acknowledged by email from the event coordinator.

If upgrading, bring a copy of your current license. It will be submitted with your
application by the Volunteer Examiner Team. If you are taking your first test, you
must register with the FCC and get your FRN number (FCC Registration
Number). This will be used on the forms instead of using your Social Security
number. You can register for the FRN at this page.

To take the test in person, candidates need to bring the following:
• Photo ID
• Copy of your current FCC license or CSCE (for those upgrading)
• $15 cash or check made out to ARRL VEC
• Two #2 pencils with erasers and a black ink pen.
• Calculator – optional, if used, you must demonstrate the memories are blank.
