Suffolk Cty, NY Home Improvement License

matth's picture

Is there anyone here who can shed some light on the Suffolk County, NY (Long Island) Home Improvement License Test?  I'm scheduled to take the test but I don't know how detailed it will be.  For example, do I need to memorize what article 345.2 or 345.7A is?  Or does it just include general questions?


Thanks for any help.

yeh...what?

The test is all about biz and contracts..nothing to do with building (how lame is that?)
It's really not that difficult....just read the book they give you...if I passed the test anyone can....lol.

My insurance company of about 15 years is dropping me because I told them I only work on my own spec house.....go figure ( I think they think its a conflict of interest). Spose what I should have said was that I work outside too, but who'd a thought?

So in that vein.....funny you should ask me cause I was gonna let my liscense expire so as not to have to pay for insurance this year being that I'm only working on my spec house and homeowners insurance takes care of that....
Finally decieded that I may have too many dead brain cells at this point and didnt wanna have to take the test again ....fill out all the forms, blah blah blah.
Found a company that charges about $1200 for insurance so I'm going with all of that....if you wanna know who just E mail me.

Be well

Hey Andy,


Thanks for the reply.  It is kind of lame in my opinion too - I think it misleads customers into thinking that you've passed some type of proficiency test that has to do with the industry.


Anyway, realize it is a multiple choice / true false test.  I really was just trying to figure out if I needed to memorize things like "what is Article 345.6 A, B or C" or if I just need to know the basics of the document they sent me.


I never really liked studying in school and I guess I still don't (don't tell my children that!) when it comes to something that isn't really relevent to day to day things that interest me!

Deal with it, cause you have to and it ain't that hard yet I'd rather just keep my liscense and pay the twelve hundred cause I've become retarded : )
Be well bro
