Applications and Examination Schedules

All applications must be completed in full and submitted to the board office along with the fee listed on the application.

Any applications received that are not completed in full will not be accepted and will be returned.

We do not accept personal or business checks as a form of payment.

Examination Notifications of the date and time to report for examination will not be mailed until after the examination deadline for that scheduled exam.

We ask that you do not send cash through the mail with any application!

Construction Projects on Interstates and Highways

Due to numerous Construction Projects on Interstates and Highways leading to the Board office, the commute can be delayed at times. Please plan accordingly for these delays when traveling to your examination. Plan ahead and allow extra travel time so you will not be late for your examination. Examinations CANNOT be delayed for traffic issues and late arrivals WILL NOT be accepted.


Examination Dates

Applicants will be scheduled for state board examinations as their applications are received in the KBHC office.

All applications for any month must be in the office ten (10) working days prior to the beginning examination date (deadline date), exclusive of Saturday, Sunday, and holidays. The applicant will receive notification from the office of the board of the date and time for their examination following the deadline date for that month.

Examination dates are subject to change at the Board’s discretion.
