Apply for participation in an amateur radio examination

Description

In order to be admitted to the amateur radio service in Germany, you must successfully pass a German amateur radio examination or apply for recognition of a foreign amateur radio examination certificate or amateur radio license.

You can apply to the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) to take a German amateur radio examination. Admission to the amateur radio examination takes the form of an invitation to the amateur radio examination.

The amateur radio examination is a multiple-choice test and consists of 3 parts:

  • operational knowledge,
  • knowledge of regulations and
  • technical knowledge.

To successfully pass the amateur radio exam, you must pass each of the 3 parts of the exam. If you fail one or more parts of the exam, you can repeat them.

To prepare for the amateur radio exam, you can use the relevant catalogs with exam questions, which you can find on the BNetzA website.

Taking an additional exam

If you have already passed a class E amateur radio examination, you can upgrade from class E to class A by taking an additional examination. In this additional examination, you only have to pass the technical knowledge part of the examination for class A.
