Testing Dates

Testing During the COVID-19 Era

We do our best to hold our exams according to our schedule.  However, should conditions preclude us from holding an exam on our scheduled date, then we would likely just cancel that exam date and look forward to our next scheduled exam session.

We are not holding on-line sessions.  As much as we would like to be able to offer those, we do not have the ability to do so at this time.

We know how important our exam sessions are to our candidates and we do our best to accommodate them.

When we do hold our exams, we limit the number of people in our testing room.  We test no more than 4 candidates at a time.  So, while our testing page lists our testing time as 10:00 AM, that will be our first testing time of the day.  As we receive more requests to take exams, we will schedule the exams at 45 minute intervals.  We expect that our candidates have studied sufficiently in order to pass their exams, therefore, those candidates who do not pass their initial exams and want to re-test, will have to wait for another time slot to open up.  Candidates who want to take multiple exams at this session (e.g., their Technician and General Class license exams) will be allotted additional time.

We ask that our candidates wear facial coverings to our exams and practice safe social distancing.  Our Volunteer Examiners will all be wearing facial coverings and we will also be doing our best at social distancing.

Our goal is to offer a safe and pleasant exam experience for both our candidates and Volunteer Examiners.

 We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming exam session.


Our exam schedule is:


Saturday, Mar 19, 2022

Saturday, May 21, 2022

Saturday, Jul 16, 2022

All candidates are asked to arrive early so that we can start testing by 10:00 AM.  Due to space limitations, we cannot accommodate walk-ins (those who do not pre-register).

The deadline to pre-register is noon on the day prior to the exam. (See Pre Registration)

The Shingletown Amateur Radio Club holds licensing exams in even-numbered months.

So, if you are ready to take your exam and donít want to wait for our next exam session, consider testing with them. All are at 8:00 am
