North Carolina Contractors Business and Law Exam Prep Services & Materials

We offer everything you need to prepare for the North Carolina Contractors Business Law Exam, required for all North Carolina Contractor license applicants beginning 1/1/2020.

To prepare for the Business and Law Exam, you will need the required reference manual and tabs as well as our exam prep course. We also give the option to purchase a pre-tabbed and highlighted reference manual, saving you valuable hours of highlighting the information within the book yourself.

All candidates must pass the Business & Law Exam for licensure in North Carolina.

Applicants must apply to the state prior to registering with PSI for an examination. When an application meets all necessary requirements and an exam is required, the exam candidate(s) will be mailed an exam eligibility letter.

You can find the North Carolina Contractor license application at the NCLBGC website here.
