Hello everyone, all I want to do is renew my drone registration and I am having so many problems just trying to get to the FAA website. when I do go into it it tells me to register then when I try it comes up and wants to cost me 29.00 dollars to 45.00 dollars, I don't know why I am having so many problems just to renew my drone which I have had for 3 years. I did not have the problem when I got my phantom 3. standard 3 years ago. everything went smooth, does anyone have a phone number for the FAA, I have looked at so many websites about how to renew, and I feel like I am getting the runaround. PLEASE ANY ADVICE IS HELPFUL. I just want to follow FAA RULES. Nov, 6th 2020 THANKS

You are looking at a scam site and not the genuine FAA site.
Go to the site shown in post #2

I feel your pain! Not the easiest FAA site to find. Most of what comes up are third party sites that make you think they are FAA and charge that ridiculous price. The first reply had the answer;
Easy from there....and "only" five US dollars.
Happy flying!

There's a scam being worked for just about any site on the net where money has to be paid. Beware. You've just scratched the surface!
