Contractor Resources

CSLB offers resources and information to help contractors perform professionally, legally, and safely.

Journey-Level Experience

If you're at least 18 years old and have at least four years of journey-level work experience over the past 10 years, congratulations--you're well on your way to getting your very own contractor license.

Applicants

As a condition of licensure, an applicant must take and pass two examinations:

  • Law and business
  • Trade

(Exception: A trade examination is not required for the C-61 Limited Specialty classification.) Under certain conditions, a waiver of the examination(s) may be granted. Final determination as to whether the applicant meets the requirements for the examination or the criteria for the waiver is made during the application review process.
