FCC license examinations are administered by authorized members of the ARRL VEC program. Three examiners must be present at each testing session. Exams for the Technician (35 questions), General (35 questions), and Extra-class exams (50 questions) are given at the same time in the same place. Scoring is done on the spot, and the passing score is 70%. It takes a few days for exam results to be entered directly online into the FCC database. Once your name and call sign appear there, you are authorized to transmit on the bands or portions of bands appropriate to your license class.
