Pre-Registration



The Redding ARRL Volunteer Examiner Team requires those testing with us to pre-register for our exams. When you pre-register, we can fill out all of the necessary paperwork prior to the exam and have everything ready for you the day of the exam. Having our candidates pre-register speeds up testing and the licensing process.

Pre-registering is fairly simple and takes just a few minutes. You do not need to fill out the information on a Form 605 and submit that. If you just send an email with the information, that is the preferred method. We will prepare the Form 605.

Please be aware that most of the information you submit on your Amateur Radio license application will be available on the FCC’s web site and on other web sites. This includes your name, your address and your felony conviction status.




The address you provide will be accessible online in many databases related to call signs. You may provide your PO Box or other address where you receive mail, instead of your home address.

Phone number must be in the format 555-555-5555.

Choose which license you want to take an exam for.

If you are currently licensed, your FRN will be on your amateur radio license. If you are not currently licensed and do not have an FRN, you will need to get one.

Choose which testing date you want to attend.

If you already have your amateur radio license, enter it here. If you don't, leave this blank. You can apply for a vanity call later.

The FCC does require applicants to answer the Basic Qualification Question:
Has the Applicant or any party to this application, or any party directly or indirectly controlling the Applicant, ever been convicted of a felony by any state or federal court? (Effective as of 8-21-17)*
