 Plan to bring:

  • Cash to cover the exam fee. (usually $15)
  • Pen and pencil
  • Calculator (optional) - please note: the memory will need to be cleared if it is a programmable type!

  • Identification - One (1) of these:
    • Driver’s license
    • Passport
    • CAC
    • Other government-issued photo ID
  • OR Two (2) of these:
    • Non-photo ID or driver’s license issued by a government

    • Utility bill, bank statement or other business correspondence that specifically names the person

If you are already licensed, bring the ORIGINAL and a COPY of your License.

If you are claiming any credit for previous exams, bring the ORIGINAL and a COPY of your CSCE. (This is uncommon. If you have a license, bring that instead; see previous point.)

 

Fun Fact:
If you pass your Technician exam, you are allowed to continue to the General and Amateur Extra tests during that session at no additional charge.  Some hams have gone "from zero to extra" in one session!
