|Arrive between 8:00 and 8:45 A.M.

- Proof on paper of any current license (e.g. copy of license,
printout of ULS record)
- Other documentation if required for credit for
an element taken earlier
- Test fee ($15.00 during 2020)
|Calculator (If the calculator is programmable, you must demonstrate

|Once you qualify for a new license or an upgrade, you will
likely not get a license in the mail. Since February, 2015,
the FCC no longer issues license documents on paper by
default. Official proof of being licensed is now the presence
of an entry in the FCC's ULS database on line. If you would
like a paper license document, there are several ways to go
about getting one. See
www.arrl.org/obtain-license-copy for details.
How To Find The Exam Room
- Find the parking lot.
To approach from Interstate 15, take the 2100 South exit,
then go east to State Street. The buildings are on the northeast
corner of the intersection of 2100 South and State Street.
The parking lot is just east of the building.
If you approach from the west or the south, the best
strategy is to go north on State Street to Westminster Avenue
(1905 South), turn right on Westminster, and then almost
immediately right again, into the parking area. Observe the signs
to find a space that is open to the public.
- Find the building entrance.
There are two very similar buildings connected by a skywalk.
You must enter through a door on the east side of the north
building near its south end. (See photo below.) Do not try
to enter the “Employees Only” entrance near the
north end of the north building.
Explain to the guard why you are there and sign in on the register.
- Find the elevator.
There are elevators along the west wall. Use them or the nearby stairway to get
to the third floor.
- Find room N3-930.
Upon exiting the elevator (or stairway) turn left and
go north along the hallway. Look for a room on the right
with lights on and an “Amateur Examinations” sign on
the door. We will usually have a check-in table set up in the
hallway just outside the room.
If you should, instead, get into the eastern hallway,
look on your left for a door marked N3-930 and “Conference,”
and you have arrived.
