The Greater Los Angeles Amateur Radio Group VEC is one of the 14 FCC-recognized Volunteer-Exam Coordinators conducting amateur radio exams. GLAARG is a VEC testing organization, not a radio club. Our exam fee is only $5.
For identification, you will need a government-issued, signed picture ID (Driver’s License or Passport, for example). Some VE Teams require a second form of identification, such as a signed credit card or utility bill that shows your name and address as it is on your other ID. The VE Team must be satisfied as to your identity.
