Taking an FCC Exam

When you are ready to take an exam, do the following:

  1. Call one of the examiner contacts (listed below). Although not mandatory, it's wise to call and make sure that the exam session has not been canceled or moved.

  2. Review the list of what to bring, and make sure you bring all that's listed.
    See: http://www.arrl.org/what-to-bring-to-an-exam-session

  3. Please obtain an FRN (FCC Registration Number) before the exam from:
    https://apps.fcc.gov/coresWeb/publicHome.do

    The FRN is a public ID number not tied to any sensitive data (we will accept your SSN if you do not have a FRN, but in this era of identity theft, we really don't want your SSN).

As of this writing, the test fee is $15 for ARRL exam sessions (BARC's exam is ARRL) or $14 for W5YI exam sessions (at some other locations). Call one of the contacts, below, and ask whether the fee has changed. Consider bringing two test fees. If you don't quite pass on the first try, then if you wish you can pay a second fee and try again.

Most hamfests have exam sessions, too:

Hint: You get the best results searching by state, e.g. all sessions in Colorado.

And again - call a contact before you show up!
