Step 3: After you Submit your Home Improvement Salesperson (HIS) Application
Will CSLB acknowledge receipt of my application?
Yes, CSLB will send you a letter of acknowledgment that will include an application receipt number. To check on the status of your application you must refer to your application receipt number.
May I begin working as an HIS as soon as I have submitted my registration application and fee to CSLB?
No. You must wait until CSLB issues your HIS registration number. It is illegal to begin working as a home improvement salesperson before your application has been reviewed and you receive your HIS number.
How long will it take to become registered?
The time required to process and issue an HIS registration number depends on CSLB's workload and staffing levels at the time an application is submitted.
