The Durango VE Team will be holding Amateur Radio license testing sessions at 1:00 PM on the dates listed below. The sessions are open to all whether you’re testing for your first Amateur Radio license or you want to upgrade!

The “Durango VE Team “DARC VE Team Test Instructions” file, has links to a number of on line resources, many free, which include flash cards and practice exams to help you prepare for the exams.

It also answers a number of questions which people have had over the years, so look at that file and most questions will be answered. If you have a question that is not addressed in that file ask.

The file also has information and the link to obtain your FCC ID (FRN), which you will need to put on your application. Once you obtain your FRN that same file has the link to the testing registration page. Once you decide which testing session you will be attending, please sign up ASAP.

Pre-registration is strongly recommended. You may register at:

It is preferred that walk-in candidates obtain their FRN in advance (see instructions in the “Durango VE Team Test Instructions” file).

If walk-in candidate requires assistance to obtain an FRN, help will be provided only IF the candidate has a valid EMAIL address that can be accessed via internet from the exam site AND VEs have time to assist. If you need help with an FRN, arrive early to allow time for registration..No walk-ins accepted after testing begins.

Time: Testing starts promptly at 1:00 PM. Please plan on arriving at 12:45 to complete registration. No applicants will be accepted after 1:00 PM.
