License Exams


FARA conducts regular ARRL VE amateur radio license examination sessions for all amateur radio license levels. The exam fee is $15.00.  Sessions are open to anyone wishing to take an exam--you do not need to pre-schedule an exam. Exam sessions that are held in conjunction with FARA license courses will be announced as soon as the courses are scheduled.

Schedule:  Exam sessions for all license levels are held on the second Saturday of every month beginning at 9AM, year around.

Location:  Falmouth Town Hall, 59 Town Hall Square, Falmouth, MA 02540.  Enter from the rear of the building.  Exams are held in the Selectmen's meeting room, located to the right as you enter.

Identification: Bring 2 forms of ID with you (a drivers license plus a credit card will suffice).  If you do not have a drivers license you will need some form of photo ID. A passport, a school ID, a seniors ID for airlines, or similar. 

Documentation: If you have an amateur radio license, bring two copies of the license.  Also, bring two copies of any CSCE earned during the last year to be used for credit for a license class upgrade.
