NASCLA Pass the Exam
NASCLA LICENSING INFORMATION
The NASCLA Accredited Examination for Commercial General Building Contractors is used by state contractor licensing agencies to test commercial general building contractor candidates. It is designed to reduce redundant licensing requirements and to assist contractors who desire to be licensed in multiple jurisdictions.
Application must be filed with NASCLA at nascla.org and they must approve the application. Once an individual is approved their name will be forwarded to PSI. PSI will then send the applicant an email confirmation with information to register for the test. Test registration is done through PSI Exam Services, either via their website www.psiexams.com or by calling 800-733-9267.
Candidates must pass a qualifying examination for licensure with a minimum score of 70%. Candidates may take computer examinations administered at any PSI Examination Service Center. Once your exam has been passed your results will be entered into NED (National Examination Database). This will allow you to transfer your results to other states. Contractors must still meet any other state licensing requirements for participating state agencies. (For example; financial and business law requirements)
