Ham Radio License Exams

Our VE Team provides license exams on the second Sunday of every odd month during the year at the Old Elmwood Recreation Center, in Independence, Ohio. (see details and map below)

Examinations begin at 9am. Walk-ins are welcome, however, it would be best if can call a registration in at least one week prior to the test date.

Please bring the following when applying for examination: a Photo ID, ink pen to fill out the FCC form, two pencils with erasers, any original License or Certificates of Successful Completion of Examination (CSCE) plus a copy of your license to be sent to the ARRL/FCC with the exam papers.
