Default Where to find amateur radio test sessions

Amateur radio license tests in the U.S. are conducted by Volunteer Examiners. These are volunteer amateur radio operators who have been certified by a Volunteer Examiner Coordinator to conducts license tests. Individual VEs will usually work as part of a local team to organize test sessions which are generally open to the public. Some VE teams allow walk-ins while some VE teams require that you register with them ahead of time so they can make sure to have enough space and materials for everyone who wants to take a test.

You can find a list of Volunteer Examiner Coordinators here:

NCVEC - FCC Certified VECs

Not all of the VECs have web sites listing the test sessions that have been scheduled, but some do. Here's a list:

Anchorage Amateur Radio Club (conducts sessions in Alaska only) AARC VEC - Sessions page

American Radio Relay League (ARRL) Find an Amateur Radio License Exam in Your Area

Laurel Amateur Radio Club Laurel VEC

Milwaukee Radio Amateur's Club Ham Radio Exams
