Trying To Get Your Drywall Contractors License?

The good news is — we’re ready to help you.

If you’re trying to get the C-9 license, or any of the licenses, we’re here for you.



How To Get Your C-9 Contractors License

Getting the C-9 Drywall license can seem like a daunting (and even a daring) process. Our job is to break down the process and make it as easy as possible for you from start to finish.

We’re not going to lie. Studying to pass the tests is hard work. But we try to make the classes as fun and engaging as possible.

What do you need?

For you, there are 3 requirements.

1. Four years of experience working in the C-9 drywall trade.

(either working for someone or self-employed).

2. You must be at least 18 years old.

3. You must have a valid social security or ITIN number.


You have to pass two main tests with the state of California — you do it through CSLB (Contractors State License Board). Once you pass these tests (and do a few other things — like getting a Contractors Bond and a LiveScan — simple things that you don’t need to worry about just yet) CSLB will issue you your license and you can get to work being your own boss.

But you must pass the tests.

A trade test – covering topics related to drywall work.

And a law test – covering difficult topics dealing with the law.

Our mission as your go-to Contractor License School is supplying you with all the study material you will need to be able to pass these tests. And we offer a pass-test guarantee.


We provide you with hundreds of practice test questions so that you will be fully ready for the state tests. We can’t give you the state’s exact questions but, if you pass our tests, you’ll be able to pass the state tests.

It really is as simple as that.

That being said, it’s not necessarily easy.

Depends on your definition of the word easy. For me, easy means “runny eggs.” But it might mean something entirely different to you.


Is a cool place. And it’s where we’re located. We have multiple locations in SoCal, from Chula Vista (San Diego area) all the way up to Huntington Beach and we’re constantly expanding. We’ve been in business for more than a decade.

Truth is, since the pandemic hit our expansion has slowed (in terms of physical locations), but our digital presence has increased. We now offer livestream classes — you can watch our classes live through Zoom. (everyone’s heard of Zoom at this point). Students have been loving the livestream classes because they can study from home.

We have many enroll options and packages available. The livestream option is one of our best. It’s just like being in class but you can relax on your couch. Call us for more info or to enroll.


Verifying Your Experience.

We know, we know.

In your head, you’re asking — but how do I prove I have the necessary four years of experience?

It’s easy as this: you have to get one person to sign off on your application verifying you have the necessary experience. Usually this person would be an employer or a fellow employee or even a client if you’re claiming the status of self-employed.
