Useful Information and FAQs for the Virginia Highway Heavy (H/H) Contractor Specialty

Q: What is the requirement to be approved for the VA Highway Heavy specialty?

A: The Virginia Highway Heavy is the largest 'umbrella' designation that covers quite a few smaller specialties.  To qualify for the Highway Heavy specialty, your Qualified Individual(s) must have sufficient experience in any number of smaller specialties.  However, if the experience is in just one specialty, and that specialty has its own designation, (i.e.-paving, etc.) then DPOR will most likely require you to take that single specialty exam.  You'll need experience in a specialty that is only covered by the Highway Heavy or multiple smaller specialties that fall under the H/H designation.

 

Q: Is pre-approval required for the Virginia Highway Heavy (H/H) specialty?

A: Yes.  You will need to submit your license application for review to DPOR before scheduling your specialty exam.  The review process can require 4 days to 45 or more business days.  We encourage you to start early.  If you are obtaining a VA Class A contractor license, the review process can be expedited.

 

Q; What does the VA Highway Heavy designation cover?

A: Alot.  Among other things, H/H covers asphalt paving and sealcoating, concrete contracting, landscape irrigation, underground utility line installation, bridge work, excavating and grading, railroads and airport runways.  It sometimes is a 'catch-all' for designations that don't really fit other specialties.

 

Q: I've seen online practice tests.  Should I try that?

A: Many find it to be a waste of money.  You can get a 'feel' for the type of questions/answers you'll encounter on the exam, but it has been reported by countless students that the information on the actual exam is very different.
