This site allows you to take practice tests in preparation for the United States Amateur Radio (Ham radio) and Commercial Radio licensing exams. The questions and answers used in these practice exams are the official questions provided by the FCC and are organized to mimic the actual written tests as closely as possible.
Although the Morse Code requirement no longer exists for any of the amateur exams, we do have a Morse Code generator that can be quite handy for learning and practice. I have also started a 5wpm morse code podcast with daily headlines on a variety of topics.
Morse Code on your iPhone
If you have an Apple iPhone or iPod Touch then you can also download the HamMorse app from the Apple App Store and practice morse code whereever you may be! More...

It’s taken me a few weeks to get this done but the latest Extra question pool is now on the site. This came into effect at the start of July 2016 and is valid until June 30th 2020. The question pool is the most recent NCVEC 3rd public release. Please let me know if there are any issues that crop up with mis-formatted questions or anything else.
The site was relocated to a different server today (December 10th). Just about everything should be working according to plan but its entirely possible that a few things got missed, for example, the charts at the end of the graded exams are not currently working.
I’m addressing the various bugs as I come across them but if you find anything else that is not working as expected please put a note in the comments field below and I’ll take care of it.
