        There is also a General Licensing Class in a different room.

5    FRN:    Be sure to go to the FCC ULS web site and get your FRN (Federal Registration Number),
The Federal law requires the FCC to have your Social Security Number (SSN) to start your license data file.
You can do this at their web site and then you will not have to put your SSN on the official NCVEC 605 License Application Form., at the test. We would rather not see your SSN, either
The licensing process will go quicker if you get you FRN before the test.  Go to the FCC ULS site: http://wireless.fcc.gov/uls/index.htm?job=home
If you have a Novice license or an expired license, then you need to bring a copy of your license to the test session on the second day.
