Barber License by Examination (BAR 1)

A Florida barber license is required to perform all barbering services. For out-of-state or out-of-country barbers who are unable to endorse their licenses in Florida, you may be eligible to take the Florida barber written examination if you held your license for at least one year.

Application Requirements:
 
  • AGE: Applicants for licensure by examination must be at least 16 years of age.
  • EDUCATION: Applicants must complete at least 1000 hours of training at a Florida barbering school and be determined competent by a school official to sit for the barbering exam OR applicants must complete a minimum of 1200 hours of training at a Florida school. For barbers who complete their education in Florida, ensure that the school official signs the portion of the application verifying a minimum of 1000 barbering hours and the completion date.
  • EXAMINATION: For more information regarding the barber written examination, please review the Barber License Examination Candidate Information Booklet.
  • HIV/AIDS COURSE: Complete a board-approved Initial HIV/AIDS course and submit the course completion certificate with your application. The HIV/AIDS course must have been completed within two years prior to submitting an application and be at least two hours long. Note: The 4 hour course for cosmetology cannot substitute for the 2 hour course for barbers. For more information, please refer to our list of board-approved Initial HIV/AIDS Courses.
