Amateur Radio FCC Testing

Taking your amateur radio license exam is SUPER easy with the VOI ARC exam team!

We host our exam sessions every 1st saturday of most months at the Food 2 Store in Meridian.

The exam session begins at 10:30 AM. Arriving early is recommended.

The address for Food 2 Store is: 521 East 3rd street, Meridian, Idaho, 83642

Before attending a real exam session we recommend using the flashcards and practice exams on HamStudy

There are a few things that are required to be brought to the exam session. The required items are listed below

  • A FRN(FCC Registration Number) is required for ALL amateur radio license exam applicants. Social Security Numbers are NO LONGER acceptable for FCC Form 605 purposes.
  • Taking the exam costs $15.00. This $15.00 must be paid up front at the exam session in the form of either exact-change cash or a check made payable to “ARRL”.
  • We recommend printing out FCC form 605 and filling it out before you get to the exam session. We may have FCC form 605s on hand at the exam however it would be nice if you could bring it ahead of time to speed up the process.

If you have ANY questions about the exam session process please contact Jim Szatkowski at: jamesski at gmail dot com.
