We do not have payment plans for our material. You are more than welcome to purchase things separately. For example, you can buy the books and the classes for the trade exam, study, take the exam, and buy the courses and books for the business, study, and take your exam. By doing this, you can focus on one section at a time. We do have all of our books in stock.

I’m wondering if there’s a way to be pre-screened by the State of Florida to ensure that my record is clean (enough) to obtain a GC license.

There is no way to be pre-screened by the Department of Business & Professional Regulation. To view what type of felony's can keep you from getting a license, please visit contractorcampus.com/can-a-criminal-background-affect-me-from-getting-a-contractor-s-license-in-fl.html.

What is the difference between the GC, BC, and RC tests? Are they different tests? I remember it being the same test but the GC is 65 questions or 1ü questions more than the RC with the same ammount of time
Reply
# Leah R. 2021-08-19 12:52
When obtaining a General, Residential, or Building Contractors License, the difference is the exam you will be taking, the number of questions on the exams, what the exam will cover, and what you will be able to do once you receive the license.

For more information on the exam content, please visit https://www.contractorcampus.com/how-many-questions-are-on-the-contractors-exam.html.
