The Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996 (DCIA) requires the FCC to collect a TIN/SSN
from each person doing business with them. All Amateur Radio license and upgrade
applicants must use their Federal Registration Number (FRN), if they have been assigned
one, when completing Form NCVEC 605. Using your FRN also means that you need not
enter your SSN on Form NCVEC 605.
Take your web browser to for info on
registering in FCC’s Commission Registration System and obtaining your FRN.
Special testing assistance or needs must be arranged in advance.
IMPORTANT: As of February 17, 2015, the FCC no longer routinely issues a paper Amateur Radio license document. Licensees can access their official license via the ULS License Manager. You may print an unofficial copy from the FCC’s ULS License Manager or request a paper license from the FCC. or www.wireless2.fcc.gov
