HOW TO BECOME A HOME BUILDER IN ALABAMA
Applications must be notarized and payments must be made by check or money order. A Certificate of Existence from the Alabama Secretary of State and a Certificate of Good Standing from the Alabama Department of Revenue must be submitted by entities other than individuals, along with Articles of Incorporation, Organization, or Partnership Agreements. These documents must be on file with a Probate Judge prior to applying for the license. A current credit report must also be submitted, but it must be sent directly to the Home Builders’ Licensure Board by the credit reporting agency itself. Proof of citizenship or legal residency in the U.S. is also required.
A grade of 67.5% must attained in order to pass the Alabama Home Builder Exam. The 80-question exam is administered by PSI Exam Services. The license requirements are under the authority of the Alabama Home Builders License Board.
