           two non-photo IDs are required.
           Minor children (under the age of 18) may be accompanied in the 
           room by an adult during the test.


      4.  Federal Registration Number (FRN):  VECs are required by the FCC
           to submit your FRN with your license application form.
           New license applicants should create an FCC user account and
           register their Social Security Number (SSN) in the FCC Commission
           Registration System (
CORES) before attending exam sessions. 
           Registrants will be assigned an FRN which will be used in all license
