What should you bring with you?

  • You will need to apply for an FRN number prior to testing.  You can do this by going to the FCC website.  for tutorial videos on the FCC website visit Commission Registration System Video Tutorials
  • You will need to bring your legal photo identification.
  • If upgrading bring a copy of your license
  • Bring your Fee.

*The cost for the test is $10.  The $10 cost covers all test levels taken at that exam session provided that the examinee passes the previous level license exam.  (So it is possible to take the tech, general and extra exams for $10 given each prior level is passed).
