FCC FRN Registraion - 

REQUIRED BEFORE Testing you will need to Register for your FRN number with the FCC (Federal Communications Commission).  It is easy to do and free of charge. 

The FCC Amateur Radio License application (605 form) needs your FCC FRN number or your social security number.  For your protection, we require you to register for an FCC FRN number (we do not want your social security number).  It is preferred that you get your FRN prior to Saturday, but you will need to have an FRN in order to take the exam.  This will also allow you to use your FRN to track your license request after the test on the FCC website.

To register for your FRN go to the FCC website and fill out the request.  

FCC - FRN Registration:  https://apps.fcc.gov/coresWeb/regEntityType.do
