Have you wanted to get your Contractor’s license? Well, one of the first things you need to do is to take the Florida’s Contractor’s License Exam. These exams are administered by Professional Testing, Inc (PTI) which gives exams every two months (February, April, June, August, October, & December) and/or Pearson Vue which are given on a computer format. After signing up to take the exam, we recommend that our students buy their books. Since the exam is an open book exam, we feel that the more familiar the students are with the books, the better they do on the exam. Finally, you might think about taking a class. We offer classes for most license categories and each are listed below.

All of our exam prep courses are very similar in structure and layout. We will spend time in each class discussing book layout, key sections and do some highlighting. We will also create and show solutions to math problems that are similar to what the state has on the exam, where applicable. We will also give timed tests in class and tests for you to take home. Finally, we will discuss the mental preparation that you need to pass this exam as well as discuss the layout, format and administration of the exam.
