New General Class License Exams Now in Effect

The newly-revised question pool for the General Class amateur license exam (Element 3) is now in use for all exams given over the next four years.

According to the ARRL VEC, the revised question pool was initially released this past January by the Question Pool Committee of the National Conference of Volunteer Examiner Coordinators (NCVEC), then updated and re-released in March.

Tests using the new pool began being given on July 1, 2019 and the new pool will be in use through the end of June, 2023.
