Virginia Asphalt, Paving, and Sealcoating (PAV) Exam Prep Services & Materials
We offer everything you need to prepare for the Virginia PAV exam.
To prepare for the exam, you will need books and tabs as well as our exam prep course. We also give the option to purchase pre-tabbed and highlighted books, saving you valuable hours of highlighting the information within the books yourself.
Virginia PAV Contractors may perform the installation of asphalt paving or seal coating, or both, on subdivision streets and adjacent intersections, driveways, parking lots, tennis courts, running tracks, and play areas, using materials and accessories common to the industry. This includes height adjustment of existing sewer manholes, storm drains, water valves, sewer cleanouts and drain grates, and all necessary excavation and grading. The H/H classification also provides for this function.
