COVID-19 Alert for 06-Apr-2020

There is currently no system for taking remote/on line/video license exams. The only method for taking license exams is by taking an in person test. Currently the next scheduled DVRA license testing is set for July 11th (subject to change) at the Princeton Red Cross.

If you wish to see if license exams are available elsewhere, you may search for exam sessions at: http://www.arrl.org/find-an-amateur-radio-license-exam-session. However, you are encouraged to contact the listed exam team to make sure that the testing is actually going to happen as some may not have informed the ARRL of test cancellations.

PLEASE NOTE: The exams are held in the Red Cross building closest to Alexander Road. Please use the entrance located at the rear of the building.

Please bring with you:

  • $15.00 cash or check made out to ARRL-VEC
  • A government issued photo identification – drivers license, passport, etc.
  • A copy of your current FCC amateur license (if upgrading to General or Amateur Extra)
  • Optionally, you may bring completed application form NCVEC 605, else one will be provided for you at the exam to complete

The NCVEC 605 application form will ask you to supply a Federal Registration Number (FRN) and if you do not have one, supply your social security number (SSN) instead. Some people are a bit hesitant to give their SSN but it (or the FRN) is required by law for the FCC to process your application. The FRN is used in lieu of a SSN as a unique identifier when doing business with the FCC.

You may obtain your own FRN from the FCC prior to the license exam session to use on your application

A note to volunteer examiners: Please arrive at 9:30AM to assist with set up.
