People testing for new licenses are requested to apply at the fcc,gov website for a Federal Registration Number (FRN). This is so we protect people from identity theft by not using a Social Security Account Number. Please go to the fcc.gov website and apply for a Federal Registration Number. Chris Laster has a good link on You tube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPBSWVLpWRs
 
People upgrading their existing licenses are required to bring a copy of their current license that we can keep as it will be forwarded to the ARRL.
 
There is a fee of $15 for exams. 

When you take the FCC exam, you will be required to have photo identification. A drivers license, passport, Georgia Concealed firearms License with photo or similar.

For children, please use the following rules:

“When no photo ID is available, the candidate must present any two of the following items:

• Non-photo ID/driver’s license (some states still have them);

• Social Security Card (as FCC now requires each applicant to supply a taxpayer ID number)

• Birth certificate (must have the appropriate seal);

• Minor’s work permit or school report card;

• Utility bill, bank statement or other business correspondence that specifically names the person; or

• Postmarked envelope addressed to the person at his or her current mailing address as it appears on the Form 605.”

Even a video game magazine or Boy Scout Boy’s Life magazine addressed the the child will serve as one of the two required IDs. Even a school year book can provide photo proof of the child being tested. Even school report cards can be used. Anything else of a similar nature that demonstrates child’s identity and residence. By being accompanied by his or her parent does not satisfy the rule.

 
If you have any further questions you can contact me by email at  N1MN@ATT.NET  or call 770-713-4403.
 
Thank you.
