FLC Exams and Continuing Education
Farm labor contractors (FLC) are required to take California’s farm labor contractor exam every two years. An FLC who has violated any law related to farm labor contracting must take the exam the year after the violation or at the request of the Labor Commissioner.
A copy of a valid driver’s license or other legal photo identification is required for each person taking the exam.
** If you need to retake the FLC exam before the expiration of an existing license, the application will not be approved even if you apply during the two-year period in which the exam is valid. **
If you fail the exam three times within a year, the application will be denied.
