What you need: A photo ID, $15.00 cash or personal Check (We can't take Cards), and a copy of your current license if you upgrading (a Reference copy from the FCC web site is acceptable, it doesn't have to be the Official copy)
                I also always suggest you bring an extra $15.00. Its a big question pool and for most of us there's always a chance of getting all the questions you don't know. For a second fee we will give you another test. We've had many people do this and pass with flying colors.

Contact:   Please contact Greg at   KG7D@arrl.net   so we can prepare for the correct amount of candidates, or with any questions you might have. Please let Greg  know you heard about the exam on the NVCARS web site.

Additional information:  If you would like to stay for it, after the exam session we have a question and answer session. Our experienced VE's will assist you with whatever questions you might have about getting started with ham radio or any another part of ham radio. If you've purchased a new radio and need help programing it. Bring it! We will gladly assist you in learning how to program it. If someone is ready to take the test, and  needs to take the exam while its fresh in their mind. Contact Greg, he might be able to arrange a special session.
