We are no longer accepting walk-in testing due to the need to form workups prior to testing.
Please click here to register and fill out the form to let us know that you are planning on testing with us. You will need one form of picture ID or two forms of IDs if not a picture ID and if you have a current Amateur Radio License bring a copy of your license that we can keep it to send in with your test. You will need a FRN number to take the test. This can be acquired by clicking here. If you have questions, give Glen Sage, N4DN a call at 276-398-3548. We WILL NO LONGER ACCEPT WALK-INS. You must register at least 5 days prior to the test. Your registration for the test captures all the information required for the FCC-605 form so when you arrive your completed 605 will be ready and all you will need to do is sign the form at the test session.
Laurel is now requiring a valid email address for all testing. The FCC is shifting to handling all business via email so those that don't have a personal email need to have someone to accept their email traffic regarding the FCC. Within a few months the FCC will be shift to for fee license and will be collecting $35.00 for a ten year license. Our testing will continue to be free.
