How to Get Your Georgia Residential Light Commercial Contractor License

The GA Residential Light Commercial Contractor License is granted by the Georgia Professional Licensing Board.









The basic steps for obtaining a Georgia General Contractors license are:

  1. Fill out an application and submit an application fee to the board for approval
  2. Pass a trades exam
  3. Pass a business law exam

The applications can be downloaded directly from the Georgia Professional Licensing Board's website. Click Here

The tests you'll be required to pass are administered by PSI exams. The details of each test are in the Candidate Information Bulletin PDF which you can find by Clicking Here.

The best and easiest way to pass the Georgia Residential Light Commercial Contractors License exam is to use a prep course. For example the GA Residential Light Commercial Contractor license exam will have 90 questions that span 13 different books over 9 different subjects.

Those 13 books contain 1,000's of pages of information. If you can read these text books and technical code books as fast as 50 pages per hour, it will take weeks just to read the words.

(Want to see how fast you can read, take the reading speed test here)

A good prep course like the ones you'll find at My Contractors License will not only reduce your study time down to about 30 hours, but it will teach you what you need to concentrate on, what you can skip, and special techniques for taking the exam and passing the test on your first attempt.

The GA Residential Light Commercial license is for work relative to detached one-family and two-family residences and one-family townhouses not over three stories in height, and contractor work or activity related to multifamily and multiuse light commercial buildings and structures.
