The NHBRC test is an open computer book test that consists of 25 multiple choice questions divided into sections as shown below. In order to pass the test, you need 13 marks out of 25. The time duration for the test is 1 hour & 30 minutes. Usually, an invigilator will assist you within the first few minutes to set up your username, password as well as the details of your company on the NHBRC’s computer.
On the day of the test, please make sure that you take along with you, your R 745.61 invoice together with its proof of payment as well as your ID copy otherwise, you shall not be allowed to write the test.
Please note, the Nhbrc test is NOT based on the National Home Builders Manual that you receive upon payment of the R 745.61 invoice but rather, it is based on a number of SANS manuals which are too plenty to mention here.
