ARRL VE Test Sessions

SCARC hosts ARRL Testing at least four times a year. There are benefits to taking the exam with us. If you pass your exam, you will receive a free 1-year membership with the club. We do this to help you get started with the hobby. We are here to answer any of your questions. The club radios are available for you to get on the air if you desire. The club hosts a couple of events each year, which allows you to operate and gain some experience.

SCARC Conducting Amateur Radio License Exam

An FRN (Federal Registration Number) will be required for first-time testing. Social Security numbers will not be accepted. To register on the FCC CORES site click HERE. There is a $15 testing fee that must be paid at the time of the exam. You can pay by cash or check. If you are using a check, please make it out to ARRL/VEC.

If you have a license and you want to test for an upgrade, you will need to bring a copy of your current license. Go to the FCC Website to download your current license. We ask that you pre-register for the exam.
