Day of the test, examinees must bring:

• An FCC Registration Number (FRN) if you are applying for a new license. It is free and only takes a few minutes on the FCC’s website. FRN instructions are here: https://www.fcc.gov/new-users-guide-getting-started-universal-licensing-system-uls and in this video https://www.fcc.gov/rofrn .

• A copy of your license if you are upgrading (copies will be collected and submitted to FCC)

• A photo ID

• A check or money order made out to ‘ARRL-VEC’ for $15 (no cash is preferred but we can accept it)

• For candidates under age 18 the fee is reduced, only $5

• A pen for filling out the Form 605 application

• Pencils for filling out the answer sheet

• A simple calculator if you feel you need one — no smart devices (i.e. watch or phone) will be permitted

Also, if you are sitting for a new Technician license, the FCC will want a $35 license fee to be paid separately and subsequently to the FCC to get the license issued. This fee does not apply to upgrades.
