|When you submit applications through a third party, such as a Volunteer Exam Coordinator (VEC) or Amateur Radio Club Administrator or Commercial Operator License Exam Managers (COLEMS), you may have been automatically registered in CORES. It is also possible that you have received multiple FRNs. To verify the status of your FRN(s), choose "License Search" from the ULS homepage, and query the ULS license database by call sign. Your CORES FRN will be displayed on your license record.
For application purposes, please make sure that you submit the correct CORES FRN or TIN to your VEC. When new applications are granted, they are associated with the FRN-TIN provided on the application.
