  • We invite you to pre-register to the test session (it's simple and free, just fill in the online form reported below) to allow us to better organize the tests; walk-ins are allowed subject to space and time availability.
  • Make sure you have a U.S. mailing address; you must have use of a U.S. mailing address in order for your FCC paperwork to be processed. The FCC will not mail your license to a non-US address.
    If you have difficulties on this point, email us and we'll help you.
  • You are required to bring a legal photo identification (i.e. identity card, driver's license or passport).
  • We need the original and a copy of any current FCC license or CSCE. We can't give you credit for elements you've previously completed unless you bring the CSCE.
  • The test fee for 2005 is US$ 14.00 (all class licenses). We will also accept the equivalent amount in Euro as a convenience to you (about 11 euro).
  • American citizens will need to have their social security number (SSN) or tax identification number (TIN) handy.
  • Retesting of failed elements the same day is not normally offered at our test sessions. We may make exceptions to this policy only if time permits (for all interested candidates) and if the VE team is unanimously determined to offer retesting after the standard session.
