A few minutes after you take it. The VE will grade it right away and then tell you how you did.

As soon as the 3 VE's grade it while you are still there. They will give you a CSC right then and there. VEC will then send the results of the testing session to the FCC - usually the next morning. Usually takes about a week (often quicker) to appear on the FCC's FRS and hard copy of your license will follow. Testing dates around national holidays often slow things down a little. Be grateful! My Novice license (1960) took three months to get to me and only then could I fire up the rig. When your callsign appears in the FRS, you're legal and can get started exploring the world of amateur radio first hand.

GH2, you get told straight away that you passed or otherwise.

Mine took a week to appear - including the paperwork being airlifted from the local airbase in the UK to the US.
