Exam Information

FCC Registration Number

The FCC requires that you identify yourself on the Amateur Radio license application with either your Social Security Number OR a FCC Registration Number (FRN).

For security purposes, we do not handle records with your SSN. Therefore we REQUIRE that you obtain an FRN BEFORE testing.

If you have an Amateur or GMRS license, you will already have an FRN. You can find it on your license or at http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsSearch/searchLicense.jsp

If you don’t have an FRN, you can obtain one at https://apps.fcc.gov/coresWeb/regEntityType.do

Once you have your FRN we ask that you preregister at https://goo.gl/forms/s7grtRBW1Oxr7jGk2 . This is the same form you will fill if you walk in.


If your current license class is shown in the FCC database you do NOT need to bring a copy of your license. If you have taken an upgrade and your upgrade is NOT in the FCC database bring the original Certificate of Successful Completion of Exam (CSCE) AND a copy.


The Volunteer Examiner (VE) Team is required to validate your identity and be satisfied that the person taking the test is the applicant. This is usually done with a photo ID, such as a drivers’ license or passport. Those who do not have a drivers’ license may bring a student ID or some other form of government issued ID or copies of several utility bills. If you have any questions on this please contact us BEFORE coming to the test.
