Is the PVVET associated with the ARRL?


The PVVET is not associated with the ARRL. Our examinations are not handled by the ARRL VEC in any way. Our examinations and examiners are accredited by Laurel VEC. This allows us to offer free testing* and electronic submission.

PVVET may make candidates aware of the ARRL and their membership options. Many of our VEs/Volunteers help out with other VECs and their teams and examinations. It’s all about promoting amateur radio and getting people licensed!

*Exam administration is FREE with Laurel VEC/PVVET. However, FCC application fees may apply if you are getting a new license. Those who are already licensed and are upgrading, it’s still completely free with PVVET/Laurel. VE Teams CAN NOT accept FCC application fees at exams.  This must be done online.
