AA7HW Remote Amateur Radio License Exam Instructions

Thank you for registering for the Online Amateur Radio License Exam. Please complete the following items as soon as possible:

Note that you no longer need to sign a Form 605 prior to the exam. You will electronically sign the Form 605 and CSCE after you pass the exam.

In order to take the online license exam, you must have:

I will email a Zoom link about 5 minutes before the remote test session begins. You will be in a waiting room ("Please wait, the meeting host will let you in soon.") until it is your turn to take an examination. Depending upon how many people are ahead of you, and how long each person takes to complete their examination(s), your wait may be as long as 90 minutes. If for some reason, your wait will be longer than 90 minutes, I will send a message via Zoom to you in the waiting room.

Here is information from the Zoom Help Center regarding how to join a Zoom meeting: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362193-Joining-a-Meeting.

You may either click on the correct answer, or type the letter (A, B, C, or D) of the correct answer. During the exam, you are permitted to skip questions and go back to answer them later, and you are permitted to go back and review your work if you wish. As you progress through the exam, a message in the upper right corner of your screen will indicate the number of questions that have not yet been answered. The exam will be computer graded. You will see your score, but you are not permitted to see which questions you answered correctly or incorrectly. If you pass, you will electronically sign a Form 605 and a CSCE (Certificate of Successful Completion of Examination). After you sign these forms, we will email the signed CSCE to you and the test result will be submitted to W5YI for processing by the FCC.

The FCC will send you an email when your license is issued. To check on the status of your license, visit the FCC Universal Licensing System License Search web page and search for your license using your FRN.

Refer to the Examinee Guidebook to Remote Exams for additional information.

If you have any questions or comments, or if you need assistance or need to cancel this Online Amateur Radio License Exam Session, please email me.
