NEARBY EXAM GROUPS

 

 

We occasionally receive requests to take an exam from individuals who live outside of the Redding area.  We never turn anyone away but we want to let those candidates know that there might be other groups offering amateur radio licensing exams closer to where they live. 

 

We try to keep this information up to date.  From time to time, testing groups and/or contact information may change.  We recommend that you also check the ARRL’s web page to locate nearby exam sessions:  http://www.arrl.org/find-an-amateur-radio-license-exam-session
