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.
