The Arkansas Contractor Exam:

Arkansas now accepts the NASCLA trades exam for your General Contractor license. The NASCLA exam allows you to apply for any type of construction work and to bid on any type of contracts. The exam for this license is the NASCLA exam. The NASCLA exam is accepted in NC, SC, GA, AL, TN, MS, LA, AR, NV, WV, UT, VA, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The Arkansas board meets every 2 weeks and applications are reviewed in 2-4 weeks.

Arkansas does not have a trades exam requirement. However if you've passed the NASCLA exam, you do  not need to take their business law exam.

If you have not passed the NASCLA exam, you may get a license by taking the Arkansas business law exam.
