you may register your SSN with the FCC before exam day. Once you
have a FCC issued FRN, you may no longer use your SSN on the

FCC's registration instructions page. Please note that some
exam teams will only accept a valid FRN on your application.

license or a reference copy printed out from the FCC website, the
license information printed from ARRL website or QRZ website,
or the original(s) and photocopy(s) of any Certificates of Successful
Completion of Examination (CSCE) you may hold from previous
exam sessions. If your license has already been issued by FCC,
the CSCE showing license credit is not needed. The photocopy(s)
will not be returned.

Reference the FCC Website for more information at http://wireless.fcc.gov/uls

6. Two number two pencils with erasers and a pen.
