The fee for W5YI-VEC VE sessions is $14.00. You can take as many different test elements as you want for $14.00. But if you do not pass an element and wish to take it again at the same session, an additional $14.00 will be required. For example: if you pass the General class exam, you can try the Extra class exam at no additional charge! Go ahead, give it a shot! Even if you don't pass, you will at least get an idea of what to expect. But if you don't pass the General exam and want to take it again, you will have to pay another $14.00 test fee!
