Please Note:

Effective 11/1/2016 all candidates who are interested in sitting for the NASCLA Accredited Examination for Commercial General Building Contractors must be pre-approved by the National Association of State Contractors Licensing Agencies (NASCLA). This pre-approval application is not applicable if the candidate has previously applied for a license in an administering state.

An online application and $25.00 fee must be filed with NASCLA through the NASCLA National Examination Database (NED) website at Once the candidate is approved, NASCLA will forward the candidate’s information to the testing provider, PSI Services, LLC (PSI). From there, PSI will send the candidate an email confirmation with information on how to register to take the examination. If the application has been denied, the candidate will be notified via email by NASCLA.
