Home Inspector - Exam Schedule


Applicants shall return a completed application form and any supporting documentation to the Board at least 30 days before the next scheduled examination.

Traditional paper and pencil exams are administered bi-monthly according to the schedule below at the NC Department of Insurance, 325 N. Salisbury Street, Raleigh, NC 27603. Exams are scheduled to begin at 8:00 AM and if an additional testing session is required the same day based on demand, this is scheduled to begin at 1:00 PM.

The board now also offers the state exam in a computer based format by appointment only at the Raleigh office. The advantage of the computer based exam is that test results are provided to the examinee immediately upon completion of the exam attempt and the score is automatically recorded.

Applicants who wish to schedule either exam will find additional instructions available through the online registration system.
