What's the Easiest Contractor’s License I can get in Florida?

When looking for a contractor’s license, there are three main contractor licenses you can choose. The easiest to go with would be a Residential Contractor license, mainly because there are fewer questions on the exam. However, it has the same process as General and Building, and the experience is still the same for all three.

Good Afternoon James, You can obtain a General, Building, or Residential Contractor License in the state of Florida. Any of these three licenses will allow you to build in every part of Florida. With the residential you can do up top two stories, building up to three and General will allow you to do commercial and residential work. We have the books and classes to prepare you for the Trade and Business exams of any of these licenses.
