License EXAM INFORMATION
The administrative procedures of most exam sessions are very similar to each other. The following information should be applicable to all exam sessions in this listing. However, it is advisable to check with the session coordinator to be sure you have everything you need BEFORE you show up.
Sessions are walk-in, i.e., pre-registration is not required.
- All current amateur radio license holders must provide a FRN number when applying for a license upgrade or change of address.
- Please bring identification that includes a picture of the applicant on the ID - drivers licenses are quite satisfactory. Parents should provide some form of identification for non-driving minors. Other forms of acceptable ID include passports, picture library cards, etc. Note: Some VEC's require two (2) forms of identification.
- Bring both originals and copies of any current amateur license and any certificates showing credit from a previous exam that you need to have counted toward a possible new license or upgrade.
- Calculators are allowed, but you must be able to show the examiner team that the memories of any programmable calculators have been cleared before the exam starts.
- All needed forms will be supplied by the exam teams - it will not be necessary to bring an FCC form 605. Pencils and scratch paper are provided at several of the sessions, but you should probably have one pen or pencil of your own.
- A $15.00 examination fee will be charged at each session. This fee is for the entire session and not an individual element.
- Arrive at the exam site at least 15 minutes before the exam is scheduled to start. This will allow time to complete test-related paperwork.
- Please keep in mind that the exam team members are all volunteers and are donating their time to help you obtain your license. They make every effort to be professional and efficient in the exam process, but they ARE volunteers. We are blessed with more frequent test sessions here in Atlanta than probably anywhere else in the country, so a lot of folks are putting in their time. We enjoy doing it, but an occasional "thanks" makes it that much more enjoyable.
