There are no fees associated with the administration of PVVET examinations in any way shape or form. There are no strings attached. No donations needed and there should be no admission fees associated with the examination.
We do require that candidates pre-register on our website prior to the examination. Candidates that currently do not have a license will be required during signup to obtain a FCC Registration Number (FRN).
After April 19th 2022, the FCC implemented a $35 application fee. This applies to those who are obtaining a new license, renewals, vanity callsign applications and rule waiver applications. Those who are already licensed and are upgrading to either general or extra are exempt from application fees.
The PVVET (or any other VE Team) will not and can not accept the FCC application fees. The passing candidate will be given instructions at the end of their exam.
