Free Barber Practice Test (Updated for 2024)

Are you Ready to Take your Barber State Board Exam?


Start the test!

There’s only one thing standing between you and your new career as a barber: your State Board exam!

It’s a daunting hurdle and many people find the exam process very stressful. However, every state in the US has a licensure requirement for a good reason:

  • to keep the public safe
  • to maintain high standards in the barbering profession.

In most states, you must clear both a practical and written test.

Our barber practice test will help you prepare for the written exam–which most people find the scariest.

We use actual Barber State Board Exam questions, for you to understand the kind of questions you’ll be given in the state board. You will be able to determine if you’re ready to take your exam for real!

How to Prepare for your Real Exam

As you’ll know when you’ve taken the practice test, the written exam isn’t easy! Because the exam covers scientific concepts too, just being extremely knowledgeable about cutting hair is not enough for you to pass your exam.

Many people go into the exam totally unprepared… which is why the nationwide failure rate is 50%!

We know–that sounds scary. But don’t worry: the exam isn’t impossibly difficult. The problem is that most students aren’t told how to prepare properly, and they’re given giant textbooks that are impossible to memorize.

We were tired of watching people squander hundreds of dollars taking the barber state board exam several times. And still being unable to begin a profession as a certified barber.

That’s why we put together our Premium Barber Study Guide. This will tell you exactly what you need to know and give you all the tools to prepare. It’s so good, our students’ pass rate is 98.5%–and if you don’t pass the first time, we’ll give you a full refund!

We’ll tell you more about the study guide after you’ve taken the practice test.
