[R] testing for significance in random-effect factors using lmer

Hi, I would like to know whether it is possible to obtain a value of significance for random effects when aplying the lme or related functions. The default output in R is just a variance and standard deviation measurement.

I feel it would be possible to obtain the significance of these random effects by comparing models with and without these effects. However, I'm not used to perform this in R and I would thank any easy guide or example.
