SANDARC's Volunteer Examiner Coordinator (VEC) offers free in-person and online testing for all FCC Amateur Radio licenses. Test for your Technician, General or Extra Class License. Multiple elements allowed. Please make sure that you have studied and you are passing practice exams with 80% or higher.
SANDARC does not charge for first time license exam, re-test, or license upgrade.
Our Volunteer Examiners are mostly San Diego hams who dedicate their time and expertise to ensure that the testing process fully complies with FCC regulations and procedures.

Please pre-register for the exam. Walk-ins are allowed, but pre-registration is preferred. Please also make sure to register for an FRN before you come to the session, if you do not already have one.

On April 19th, 2022, the FCC started charging $35 per application for new licenses, renewals, vanity call signs, etc. Upgrades are not charged the $35 fee. There is no fee to take an exam with us, however, upon successful completion of an exam, you must pay the fee to the FCC before you are issued a license.
