VE Testing

The Midland VE Team provides Amateur Radio testing at 08:30 AM on the second Saturday of every month at the MARC clubhouse. The clubhouse is located at Loop 250 & Lamesa Rd. next to Christensen Stadium.

Please bring YOUR CURRENT, ORIGINAL, SIGNED LICENSE (if you have one) plus a photocopy and the original of any CERTIFICATE OF SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION of EXAMINATION (CSCE) that you plan to use for element or upgrade credit plus a photocopy.

You MUST bring a photo ID. If no photo ID is available, bring any two of the following items:

  • Non-photo ID/driver’s License.
  • Birth certificate (must have appropriate seal).
  • Minor’s work permit or school report card.
  • Utility bill, bank statement, or other correspondence that specifically names the person.

Effective January 1, 2009, the testing fee is $15.00 for each test session. This fee is charged one time, no matter whether taking one, two, or all three test elements. The Midland VE Team does not allow retests at the same test session of a failed element.

Bring BLUE OR BLACK INK PENS, PENCILS, and if necessary, a calculator with CLEARED memory.

Do not bring a completed NCVEC Form 605, as they will be provided at the exam session, and must be signed at the session.

The NCVEC Form 605 requires your Social Security number or FCC Registration Number (FRN) be provided. If you prefer to use an FRN and do not have one you may obtain one before the test session at the FCC website.

Testing is always sponsored by ARRL/VEC.

Successful results of the test session are typically available on the FCC website Thursday or Friday after the test session.
