Who cares if they're understanding or not. They are not going to employ you.

If you don't need lodging or travel beyond reimbursement for driving, then no need. Print off a NALP form if you don't get one at your callback. If you need lodging and/or travel arrangements, then you should ask the recruiter because it's likely the firm has a travel agent or department you should use for that purpose.
