Taking a contracting pre-license course is the first step in the process of getting a CCB license in Oregon. Oregon is somewhat unique in this regard. Most states do not require a specific pre-license class. If you have previously worked as a contractor in another state, you must still take the pre-license class and pass the CCB licensing exam. You can sign up and start taking your course right now!

How Hard Is The Pre-License Course?

The Oregon CCB only requires that you spend 16 hours studying the course. What and how you choose to study are up to you. You are not required to pass a final exam to earn credit for the pre-license course. In that sense, it is very easy! The course comes with a hard-copy textbook, online review videos, and optional practice questions to help you study for the state exam.

How Hard Is The Licensing Exam?

The CCB exam is an open-book test. This means you can bring your textbook and margin notes with you to the exam! The test includes 80 multiple choice questions. You will have 3 hours to complete the test. You must score 70% to pass the exam. If you studied the textbook, took our license prep tests, and reviewed the videos, you should have no problem passing the official CCB licensing exam.

How Much Does It Cost To Get A CCB License?

Besides the cost of this pre-license course, it currently costs $325 to submit a CCB license application, and $60 to take the license exam. A new business license is $50. Your construction business must be insured and bonded. The costs for insurance and bonding varies depending on your credit rating and the type of business you conduct.
