Not typically. It is required for those applying for a BC-A/r (Limited Restricted Residential) license. Otherwise, the interview may be waived in most cases. If an interview is needed, a letter would be sent about three weeks after receipt of the application notifying whether the interview or waiver has been granted. Board meeting dates and locations are available on the "Public Meetings Calendar" of our website.
An interview may be required if there are complaints or complaint history; judgments; felony convictions; bankruptcy; or lack of experience; and those who took the BC-A/r course (limited restricted residential license) in lieu of the exams. In addition, an interview may be required should there be insufficient information listed regarding experience or the financial statement. To prevent the license from being issued with an uncertain monetary amount or license classification, we may prefer you to meet with a board member. There is not a dress code to appear for an interview.
