    i don't remember if i had to pay to take the test, if i did, it was minor, like mnaybe $50. in new jersey, whatever the business is who is for hire, must be registerd and licensed. in order to HAVE your business licensed, you must employ a "responsible applicator" who is going to apply the chemicals, and keep the records, and will be responsible for upholding the laws. if you are licensed, and your friend is not, your friend can apply, but must be in clear view of you at all times. now, he can get an "operators" license, which will require much lesser testing , but he will be under your supervision, this means you don't have to be on the site, but, he must be able to contact you at all times, and you must be within 3 hrs travel time to the site . these are nj regs, they vary from state to state

    What part of Ky you located. Inlexington you can get the info you need from UK. If both of you plan to spray you will both have to pass test.

    I would talk with Uk. Laws are a little different from NJ like bobby mentioned.
