Amateur Radio VE Testing

We do remote testing on the 3rd Tuesday every month. We also provide on-demand testing. Please reach out to to schedule an on-demand test session.

What do I need to do to schedule a test?

  1. An FRN number from the FCC. If you don't have one, register on the FCC site.
  2. Email me to request an ad-hoc test. Please give me at least a couple of days and a couple of times. Or you can look on HamStudy for open sessions.
  3. Register for the session
  4. Learn the requirements before you test
  5. Pay the invoice before the session - Email should arrive a few days before the session. The ARRL VEC charges $15. for adults and $5 for minors.
  6. Look for the Zoom link - Usually emailed on the day of the test.
  7. Be prompt and ready to pass.
