San Diego Ham Radio Exams - All Welcome!

Join us for an online exam at 6:30 PM Pacific. The registration link is located at the bottom of this page.

The exam fee is $15 for adults and $5 for minors. Payment is required for retests. We will send you the link to pay a few days before the exam, if you don’t see it in the registration confirmation email.

Make sure that you are prepared and passing practice exams at about 85% or more. You’ll find practice exams here on HamStudy.org. You only need to take a few to get an idea on how you are going to do on the real exam. You are welcome to attempt the next element, if you have prepared for it. No additional fee is required.

You will need:

  • FRN from the FCC
  • Legal photo ID (driver’s license or passport)
  • Quiet area free from distraction and ham radio study material or equipment.
  • Stable internet
  • Computer, laptop, phone or tablet and a backup device
  • Charge cords/power adapters for devices
  • Single computer monitor, if used.
  • Zoom installed
  • Camera (built-in or USB webcam) so we can see you on Zoom
  • No headphones or ear buds


  • Calculator (physical or use the one on the computer)
  • Clean sheet of paper and writing implement
  • CSCE or proof of previous license, if applicable.

New ham radio operators will need to go to CORES to pay the $35 licensing fee within ten days of your application being submitted by the ARRL VEC. Upgrades are not subject to the licensing fee.

Minors are eligible for the full $35 to be reimbursed by the ARRL. We will submit the grant form on your behalf.

Contact Heather at KM6ZQB@qsl.net, if you need more information or have questions.
