  • Photo ID
  • Copy of your current FCC license or CSCE (for those upgrading)
  • Calculator – This is optional and you must be able to demonstrate that the memories are blank.

In addition, we recommend, if you are taking your first test, that you register with the FCC and get your FRN number.  This can be used on the forms instead of using your Social Security number.  You can register here.
