North Carolina License Examination Procedure

Be sure to submit your license application and fees beforehand and have your Exam Admission Ticket for whichever line of authority you're testing for available. Your Exam Admission Ticket gives you five attempts at passing the exam in the 90-day period following course completion.

You will also need to submit your fingerprints but this can be done either before or after your state testing. Your license application cannot be finalized until you submit your fingerprints so it's best to do this before your testing so your application window doesn't expire.

Register for the course and show up at the designated time and location with your Exam Admission Ticket and two forms of identification. To receive your license, you will need a passing score of 70 percent or greater on the exam. If you achieve this, you will receive an e-mail within 48 to 72 hours on how to print your license.
