Licensing, Exam Prep, Books & Continuing Education
A contractor's license is required in Tennessee for project's over $25,000. However, all electrical and plumbing work requires a license. Most license classifications in TN will require passing two exams: business and law, and the construction/trade exam. Certain licenses (such as roofing, fuel gas, framing, drywall & more) can be obtained by passing only the business and law exam, whereas the limited electrical and limited plumbing will only require the passing of a trade exam.
