Construction Company Start-up

Step-by-Step we will assist you in obtaining your California Contractors License, start your construction business, and introduce to you all the resources you may need to grow your construction company.

The California Contractors State License Board (CSLB) requires a person who will be applying for and take the exams to obtain a contractors license to have the following:

  1. Minimum 4 years of full-time or 8 years part-time of at least journeyman level experience in their field of which they will be applying for as a licensed contractor, ie: Drywall, Painting, Electrician, or General Contractor etc.
  2. An employer, supervisor, or co-worker to sign stating they have witnessed those 4 years of work experience.
  3. There will be a complete criminal background check, misdemeanors, felonies, may be disclosed and a typed up letter explaining why you got those charges. The CSLB may consider an applicant, but not guaranteed. If applicant doesn’t disclose such charges, even if they happened 20 years ago, they will come up, and may cause an automatic disqualification.
  4. Take and pass 2 exams. (Both exams must be passed, and qualifier will be able to apply for a CSLB license with-in 5 years of passing exams).
    1. Contractors Law and Business Exam for the State of California
    2. Trade Exam ie: General Contractor, Electrical, Plumbing, Drywall etc.
  5. $330 CSLB Application Fee.

These are pre-qualifications just so the CSLB may consider an applicant. Even if the applicant meets these requirements, they may still be turned down for the contractor license.

Once qualified and passed both exams, the applicant will need the following:

  1. $200 CSLB License Issuance Fee
  2. $15,000 Contractor Bond. Bond is based on personal credit history. Fees may vary between $100 all the way to $1,200 per year depending on the personal history.
  3. Workers Compensation Insurance. (Disclaimer: if applicant doesn’t have or plan to have employees, an Exempt from Workers Comp Waiver may be signed in lue of workers comp insurance.)
  4. Once license is issued, the license is valid for 2 years, and has to be renewed every 2 years to be in business.
