Arizona, like other states, requires a license in order to legally do contracting work within the state. A licensed contractor is required for any job totaling more than $1,000. To get the license, you have to pass an exam. All the fees for the application, the exam, and the license can cost hundreds of dollars in total. Paying the exam price is part of the cost of becoming a licensed contractor; you don’t want to pay to take your exam more than once. You should prepare for your exams by taking an AZ contractors license practice test. Contractors Exam Inc. is in the business of preparing new contractors to take and pass their licensing exam the first time.

Licensed contractors generally specialize in either residential or commercial development skills. Each has their own separate licensing requirements that do not overlap.
General Commercial (A, B-1, B-2)
A General Commercial contractor is authorized to work on structures intended for commercial spaces. Legally, anything that is not residential contracting is considered commercial. They require two classes of license.
Type A General Engineering
This class of license permits a contractor to build new structures, or perform repairs on existing structures. Read General Engineering details
Type B-1 General Commercial Contractor
A B-1 license permits a contractor to work on commercial buildings intended for occupation by people or inventory.
Type B-2 General Small Commercial Contractor
- Similar to the B-1 license, except payments to B-2 contractors are limited to $750,000 per project.
General Residential (B, B-3, B-4, B-5, B-6, B-10)
Working on residential homes requires a different set of skills, and therefore, requires a different set of licensing requirements.
Speciality Residential – Type R Licenses
Type R licenses are for specialized work on residential homes. This includes tasks that require specialized training, like the installation of solar panels, or installation and maintenance of swimming pools. Learn more about specialty residential contracting
