We will be having VE testing at the NEMRA, Inc club room Saturday January 21, 2023 beginning at 9am. We start at 9 am. We will be at the Old Fulton Grammar School located at 603 S Cummings St in Fulton, MS in the NEMRA club room. Look for the red testing sign for the entrance to the old school house (south side).
There is NO FEE for the testing, please bring at least 2 types of ID, one needs to be a state issued photo ID, a copy of your current license and any CSCE's not reflected in your current license (example, took general test yesterday, passed, and want to take extra today and the general upgrade has not been processed and posted yet).
As of Jan 1, 2021, Laurel VEC will no longer accept Social Security Numbers, FRN Only. The SS# entry has been removed from the application process and the session report. YOU MUST HAVE A FRN OR A VALID CALL SIGN OR YOU CANNOT TEST.
VERY IMPORTANT!!!! NOTE: If you are testing for the Technician license, PLEASE, follow the instructions below:
The FCC has begun the implementation of the $35 fee for Amateur Radio licenses !!
If you don't have an FRN, go to:
You will need to:

You must first register with the FCC and obtain a FRN before you can test. We do not accept social security numbers any more. You must bring your FRN number with you for the testing paperwork, as this is the only number you will have to complete the application (No social Security Numbers).
Walk-ins are accepted however, we would like to know if you intend to take the test and make sure that you have your FRN prior to coming to Fulton so please RSVP as soon as possible.
We will be cleaning and preparing the night before and face coverings and social distancing are encouraged and requested.
