ELIGIBILITY

All  eligibilities are valid for 1 year from the date that the application is received by the state. If you do not pass the examination within the 1 year period, you must re-apply with the state. You may take the examination an unlimited number of times during the 1 year period.

 

REQUIRED IDENTIFICATION AT EXAMINATION SITE

You must provide 2 forms of identification. One must be a VALID form of government issued identification (driver’s license, state ID, passport), which bears your signature and has your photograph. The second ID must have your signature and preprinted legal name. All identification provided must match the name on the Examination Registration Form and your Registration.

 

TIPS FOR PREPARING FOR YOUR LICENSE EXAMINATION

1. The following suggestions will help you prepare for your examination.

2. Read study materials that cover all the topics in the content outline.

3. Take notes on what you study. Putting information in writing helps you commit it to memory and it is also an excellent business practice. Underline or highlight key ideas that will help with a later review.

4. Discuss new terms or concepts as frequently as you can with colleagues. This will test your understanding and reinforce ideas.

5. Your studies will be most effective if you study frequently, for periods of about 45 to 60 minutes. Concentration tends to wander when you study for longer periods of time.

 

GENERAL CONTRACTORS

 

Take your state examination:  Must bring two forms of identification, which bear your signature and one of these must also have your photograph to take your state exam.
