Step 3: Applying for a Continuance

This step helps you understand how to apply for a continuance and what a continuance allows your business to do.

In the event that your license must be canceled and your business needs to continue operating temporarily, you may apply for a continuance.

To apply:
  • Submit the License Continuance Request (PDF) to:
    • CSLB Headquarters
      Contractors State License Board
      P.O. Box 26000
      Sacramento, CA 95826-0026
  • The submission should be no later than 90 days from the date of the death or disassociation.

Alert symbol ALERT The Registrar may grant a continuance for up to one year, but only under these certain circumstances:

Individual license
  • If the licensee dies, a member of his or her immediate family may apply.
  • If a continuance is granted, you may continue normal business operations and enter into new contracts during the period for which the continuance is granted.
Partnership license
  • The remaining partners, as listed in the Board's records may apply.
  • When one of the partners has died, you may continue normal business operations and enter into new contracts during the period for which the continuance is granted.
  • When one of the partners has disassociated, you may conduct business only on those contracts entered into before the occurrence of the event necessitating cancellation. You may not enter into any new contracts.
Corporate license
  • Continuances are not granted for corporate licenses.
  • Since a corporate license is granted to the corporation as a whole, the status of the license is not affected if one of the officers leaves.
Joint Venture license
  • The remaining businesses listed in the records of CSLB as those who formed the joint venture may apply.
  • You may conduct business only on those contracts entered into before the occurrence of the event necessitating cancellation. You may not enter into any new contracts.
