Important Information for Testees at TCARA Testing Sessions

    For every TCARA test session bring:
  • Two forms of photo identification with at least one being issued by a United States or State government entity. An example would be a state driver's license (with photo) or a U.S. Passport, and additionally an employer photo ID.
  • The exam fee (W5YI-mandated $14) in cash. Exact change is greatly appreciated. No checks or credit cards. You may take as many tests at the session as you can pass for this one fee.
  • A ball point pen, a pencil, a simple calculator (+ − × ÷ √ functions only; phones and programmable calculators are not permitted).
  • For new licenses, your Social Security Number.
  • For license upgrades,
    1. Your FCC Registration Number (FRN)
    2. The original and one photocopy of each necessary document, such as current license, CSCE for exam elements, etc.
      Your original license must be signed in ink before photocopying!
