The process to get your CC&R FFL Licence is quite simple. Here are the steps for you to help you on your way.

To get the forms, you can request the application forms from the BATFE by contacting the National Licensing Center.

** Forms must now be requested from the BATFE and they will be mailed to you.

Forms Required:
ATF Form 5310.16 - Application for License (Collector of Curios and Relics)
ATF Form 5330.20 - Certification of Compliance with 18 U.S.C 922(g)(5)(B)

National Licensing Center / BATFE
2600 Century Parkway NE
Suite 400
Atlanta, GA 30345
(404) 417-2750

Fill out the Forms
This should be self explanatory. Just follow the instructions on the form and fill everything that applies out. You need to fill out two copies of the form (See Below).

UPDATED: You now also need to submit the form for Certification of Compliance with 18 U.S.C. 922(g)(5)(B) which asks for information regarding your country of citizenship. If you don't send this in it is highly likely that your application will be seriously delayed and possibly denied.

Send in the Forms
One copy of the forms you filled out is to be delivered to your local CLEO the other sent to the Dallas office of BATFE for processing.

You DO NOT have to get a CLEO sign off on the CC&R application. You only need to deliver a copy to them. I recommend using Certified Mail as this provides proof that you sent a copy to your local CLEO.

The Address to send your BATFE copy of your application to is:
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
P.O. Box 845219
Dallas, Texas 75284-5219

You need to remit $30 payable to The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for the license with the copy that you send to ATF.

Now you get to wait for your License. This usually takes up to 6 weeks, however may take longer due to the new mail security precautions being taken on mail sent to government offices. Assuming you have no criminal history you should get your license in about 6 weeks.
