The state of Georgia  requires applicants to:

  • Be 21+ years old
  • Possess good moral character, as proven with a criminal background check
  • Pass the required exams

As of 11-1-2016, pre-approval from NASCLA is required to sit for the examination. This is done by submitting a completed application, then 2 exams must be passed: Business and Law, and the Construction Exam (Residential, Residential Light Commercial, General Contractor).
