Who needs a Contractors License?
In California, anyone bidding on a construction project that is $500.00 or more must have a license. To qualify you must show that you have four years of experience in your trade and take two exams, the Law exam and the Trade exam. The Law exam covers subjects such as contractors license law, worker’s compensation, safety codes, mechanic’s lien laws, etc. The Trade exam covers your particular trade with the exception of the C-61 Limited Specialty classification. The C-61 is for trades that are very specialized in nature and includes a whole host of sub “D” classifications. This classification only requires a Law exam. These are trades that very few people perform.
What types of Contractor Licenses are available?
There are 44 classifications of licenses available. We offer classes for all of them. Some of the most common classifications include: General Building, Electrical, Plumbing, Roofing, Drywall, Painting, Plastering, Landscaping, HVAC, and the list goes on. See our Classifications page for more detail.
How do I obtain a Contractors License?
In order to qualify for the license you must have four years of experience in your trade and complete an application.
