Here is the FCC VEC page.
https://www.fcc.gov/wireless/bureau-...k-menu-block-4
VECs are the organizations that manage the VE teams that give the tests.
You need to contact the VECs to find out when and where the VE teams have test sessions in your area.

Being that you have no idea that there are only 35 questions on the test, I would have to assume you have not looked into this very well at all. You don't even know one of the most elementary and basic answers.

There is hope Try this website that will help you prepare and be ready before test day.

In Lancaster, Ohio, there is a ham test on 6/13/2017. You might contact the Lancaster and Fairfield County ham club for more information.

It takes however long it takes to answer 35 multiple choice questions. Took me 15 minutes or less.
