      2. When no photo ID is available, two forms of identification must

          be presented:

          a. non-photo ID/driver’s license (some states still have them)

          b. birth certificate (must have the appropriate seal)

          c. social security card

          d. library card

          e. utility bill, bank statement or other business correspondence that

              specifically names the person; or a postmarked envelope addressed

          work permit, report card, or a legal guardian may present a photo ID.

      4.  Bring your Social Security Number (SSN) or your FCC issued Federal

           Registration Number (FRN). VEC’s are required by FCC to submit

           either your SSN or your FRN number with your license application

           form. If you prefer not to give your SSN, then you may use your FCC

           issued FRN, if you have one. For instructions on how to register your

           the FCC’s registration instructions page.
