License Exam Sessions
PARC conducts FCC Amateur Radio License Exam sessions quarterly on the fourth Friday of the month at the Mattituck-Laurel Library. Candidates are accepted from 6:30PM to 7:00PM. All license classes are tested. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUESTED WITHIN 24 HOURS OF THE SCHEDULED EXAM BUT WALK-INS ARE WELCOMED.
PARC will conduct the next FCC Amateur Radio exam session Friday OCTOBER 23, 2020 in the small basement conference room at the Mattituck-Laurel Library IF THE LIBRARY IS RE-OPENED AT THAT TIME. If the Library is still closed, we are planning a "drive-thru" VE exam session in the Library parking lot. Applicants will remain in their cars (alone please) and the exam material will be (safely) handed to them. The exams will be graded immediately after they are completed.
If you are planning to get or upgrade your license at that time or know someone who wants to take their license exam, please contact Jim- W2NSF (631) 734-5121 or PARC.W2AMC@GMAIL.COM for a reservation at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled exam.
You may also request a private session if you have difficulty attending one of the scheduled dates.
However, walk-ins are always welcomed.....
The fee for each exam is $15. If you pass your exam, you can take the next level exam for free. Example: you show up for and pass the Technician Exam, then you may take the General Exam for free (and even the Extra, if you pass the General).
If you fail the exam you showed up for, you may re-take it as many times as you like the same nite, but you must pay an additional $15 filing fee per each retake exam.
We limit the number of tests (and retakes) based on the library's closing time of 8pm.
