What to bring to the exam session

You will need to bring two forms of identification: #1) social security card and #2) picture ID. If you have been issued an FRN number from the FCC, please bring it. If you are upgrading, you will also need to bring any CSCE’s that you have with copies , the original and a copy of your amateur license. You may take as many test elements as you wish during the exam session. The exam session fee is $15.00 (cash only) per person that will be taking exams. The test session will start at 10:00 AM so you should arrive about 15 minutes early for processing of paper work and payment of exam fee. Walk-in's only, No pre-registration is required.  Please get plenty of sleep the night before, so you will be alert and ready for the exam(s). We look forward to seeing you there and good luck.
