    When I took my state test many years ago, I was surprised at how little theory questions there were. It was 10% tax law, 10% theory, and 80% NEC. Which is probably why so many people fail it the first time or two.

Ever heard of someone being able to take the test in my scenario before? Didn't know if they would let me.
    My first Masters License was in PA. The Block Exam required 10 years practical experience prior to taking the test. Most unincorporated areas didn't require license, however still needed to procure a permit and inspections. Conversely, incorporated cities did require a license to get a permit. This was in 1987, so things mat have changed.
