Some logistics are below:
You MUST bring your own laptop that has internet access and a standard web browser. We use a testing service called ExamTools (exam.tools) to facilitate examinations, and a computer is mandatory. When you arrive for the exam, please expect to be seated by the VE team so that your monitor is visible while completing the exam.
❏ You must have a working laptop computer.
❏ You may NOT use any kind of tablet, iPad, or any Chromebook. They won’t work. Note: certain versions of Linux may not work.
❏ NO EXTERNAL MOUSE OR KEYBOARD is allowed to be connected to a laptop. You will press the A, B, C, and D keys to answer a question and automatically advance to the next one. You may also use the RIGHT/LEFT ARROW KEYS on your KEYBOARD to advance or go back through the questions.
❏ Practice! Please be familiar with the exam and have taken a practice test or a few before testing.
❏ Know the material! You should be able to complete the exam within 15 minutes. Most questions are short and simple concepts.
❏ Practice Sites: We recommend either HamStudy.org, a free site with lots of tips, or ARRL Exam Review for Ham Radio™, a free site from the national ham radio group that you may want to join.
❏ Certificate of Successful Completion of Exam (CSCE): The Exam Manager will email you a CSCE that includes your digital signature that you will keep for your records when you pass any element.
❏ U.S. PHOTO ID: ONE legal PHOTO ID will need to be shown to the VE Team. Adults must show a U.S. or state-issued driver’s license, non-driver state ID, or U.S. passport. Under-18 students may show one of the above items, or the student shows a school ID or birth certificate and a legal guardian presents a photo ID.
