Step By Step Instructions to Get Your Texas HVAC License
Step 1 - License Application
TDLR License Application Form
You must submit the license application with appropriate fees ($115.00) to the state as well as the Experience Verification Form (included at the end of the application). It is mandated by the state that you must have at least 48 months of work experience.
Experience Verification Form
This form must be filled out by someone who will verify your 48 months of experience. On this form your reference will need to provide a description of the type of work he or she can verify that you have done. Mail the completed TDLR License Application Form along with the completed Experience Verification Form to TDLR. Call TDLR in about 5-7 business days to check the status of your approval.
Step 2 - Taking and Passing the Exam
