You must obtain an FRN before taking the exam. The cost of the FRN is $35 to the FCC. Allow at least one business day for the FCC to process your FRN application. Obtain an FRN by:

  • Creating a CORES account with the FCC (if you have not already done so): Click here
  • Signing into your CORES account: Click here
  • Selecting "Register New FRN" and following the instructions.

What to bring to your exam session:

  • FRN Number (mandatory)

  • $15 in exact change or sent via Paypal (mandatory)
  • Two No. 2 pencils (mandatory)
  • A calculator (optional)
