Virginia Contractors Exam

To get a Class A or B contractors' license in Virginia the candidate must pass Business and Law Contracting exam.
Exams are administered by PSI Exams for VA Board for Contractors. Following is the info from the PSI Contractors Exam candidate bulletin.
PSI provides examinations through a network of computer and paper-and-pencil examinations centers in Virginia. PSI works closely with the DPOR and its examination review committee to be certain that examinations meet local, national and international requirements in basic principles and examination development standards.
The Board for Contractors requires designated employees of applicants applying for the Building (BLD) Classification on their licenses to successfully complete the Building Technical examination. The Board's rules and regulations define Building Contractors as those individuals whose contracts include "construction on real property owned controlled or leased by another person of commercial, industrial, institutional, governmental, residential (single-family, two-family or multi-family) and accessory use buildings or structures". This includes additions, renovations and demolition.
After passing the necessary examination you may apply to the VA Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation (DPOR) for a license. The Contractors' License application form can be downloaded from the DPOR website at
