RARC holds VE test sessions for all classes of Amateur Radio Licenses on the 2nd Saturday of even numbered months (Feb, Apr, Jun, Aug, Oct, Dec) at 10am at the Balfour Church Ministry Building, 1712 N Fayetteville Street, Asheboro. Check our calendar.

Due to Covid restrictions we now require preregistration via e-mail at least 2 days prior to the session. Please indicate in the e-mail which test you are planning to take. If you are sick, have a fever, or have been exposed to Covid we insist that you do not expose our team or others to danger. Absent this you must provide your own multi-layer/surgical mask.


Arrive a few minutes early to get settled in. Signs will direct you. Be sure to bring two pencils and a calculator with a memory that can be cleared (not a smart phone). We provide pencils, basic calculators, and scratch paper.


The fee is $12 per test (please bring exact change). Pass the Technician or General exam and get the next level test free that day; if time permits. Fee to re-take a failed exam element is $12.
