The next in-person Amateur Radio Test Session will be at 10:30 A.M. Location is TO BE DETERMINED.
The test fee is $15.00 unless you are under 19 years of age. For those under 19, the test fee is $5.00. With that fee you can take as many element tests as you want, as long as you get a passing grade on each element. When the ARRL receives the application from the VEC, an email will be sent to the applicant indicating receipt of the app and letting them know they have 10 days to pay $35.00 through the FCCs website. This $35.00 fee does not apply to those who are applying for an upgrade to another license class. If you are under 19 years of age, you can get a $35.00 rebate from the ARRL. See www.arrl.org/youth-license-grant-program for more information.

NOTE: Candidates applying for an Upgrade to their license, must bring proof they have successfully passed the previous class to the one they are upgrading to.
