(BLOOMINGTON) - The Bloomington Amateur Radio Club conducts Volunteer Exam Testing for amateur radio licenses on the first Saturday, each month.

Testing is at the First United Church, 2420 East 3rd St, Bloomington, just west of Eastland Plaza behind Prompt Care and IU Credit Union.

Testing always begins at Noon. Please arrive 20-30 minutes early to fill out all paperwork.

What do I need to bring to testing?

  • Money to cover testing fees, $15.00.
  • If you are testing for the first time, you will need 2 pieces of ID, one of which must be a photo ID.
  • If you are upgrading your amateur radio license, please bring your FCC license, and any CSCEs you may have, as well as photocopies of these documents along with your photo ID.

Retesting: If you fail an exam and would like to try again, you may do so if the examiners are willing to stay the extra time to give the test and you pay the $15.00 VE fee again. (Please, if you were not close to passing, don't request a retest because you would be wasting your money, your time, and examiners' time.)
