Training Tips

Applying for a VHF-SRC Radio Exam

Exam Application

The SRC exam fee is £60 and covers the cost of the examiner and the administration of processing and issuing the certificate exam. This fee is payable to the RYA and is separate to the fee that you pay for the training course.

Please ensure that you print out your Exam Application form in A4 landscape and bring it with you on the day of your exam.

You will also require a Passport sized photograph for us to process your exam application to the RYA.

Exam Fee

There are a number of ways you may pay the exam fee.

1. Online payment by debit or credit card

  • The preferred method is to pay online which streamlines both the payment process and the issuing of your certificate following the exam.
  • Prior to taking the exam, use the RYA online exam payment system to pay for the exam and receive a personalised exam application form. Print this out and take it with you to the exam, together with your eligibility documents and passport sized photo.
  • The card payment does not need to be in your name, and no payment details are recorded against your account. If you need help completing the online payment please see the help notes in ‘Related documents’.

2. Payment by cheque

If you wish to pay by cheque, prior to the exam download and complete the application and payment form available in ‘Related documents’.

Indicate on the form that payment is being made by cheque. If the cheque is not in the exam candidate’s name, write the candidate’s name on the back of the cheque. Take the completed form, together with your eligibility documents and passport sized photo to the exam.
