The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry’s Construction Codes and Licensing Division allows qualified applicants to schedule their exam online. Only applicants who received a notice informing them they are qualified to take the required exam and were instructed to schedule an exam date online may schedule an exam date. An applicant must take their exam within one year of the date on the qualification notice or they will need to reapply and pay the $50 exam fee again.

Exam sessions are available at different locations and dates throughout the year. In order to schedule an exam, you must provide your application number (found on the qualification notice) and the last four digits of your Social Security Number. Once you’ve entered that information, you can choose a date and location for your exam. DLI will send you an email confirmation when you have been scheduled for the requested exam session.
