State Licensing of the Home Inspector Profession began in January of 2003. Any person practicing home inspection in Illinois must be licensed by the State. The profession is under the auspices of The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. Any person performing inspections without a license has committed a crime and is subject to prosecution by the state.
In order to obtain a license a person must complete a state licensed pre-licensing class and must pass the state home inspectors exam.
The pre-licensing classes are held by Legacy Inspection Training every other month.
The state exam is administered by PSI on a daily basis at certain H & R Block offices throughout the state.
PSI charges $225 to take the test and reservations for testing are required. No one will be seated for the test without proof of completion of the Pre-licensing Class.
Once the test has been passed, both the state test results and our Pre-licensing Transcript with seal are submitted to the state and the license will be issued usually within 10 days.
All Home Inspector licenses in Illinois expire on November 30 of even numbered years.
