New Online Tool Available to Find Licensed Contractors or Subs

Since launching its first website 23 years ago, CSLB has always strived to offer useful online services to applicants, licensees, and consumers.

License applicants can track the status of their application online; licensees can check on the real-time status of their license at any time; and consumers can use the "Instant License Check" feature to review a contractor's credentials.

Now, CSLB has launched a new feature that will help consumers who are searching for a licensed contractor. The feature will also help contractors search for possible subcontractors and awarding agencies looking for bidders for contracts.

The "Find My Licensed Contractor" CSLB website feature launched on January 8, 2018.

The feature allows you to search for licensed contractors by classification within a specific geographic area using either a city or zip code and based on a licensee's address of record. For example, you can search for all C-10 Electrical Contractors in Fresno. You're presented with a list of contractors in that classification, displayed in random order, which also includes a link to each contractor's license information. You can also download part or all of the results to either a PDF or Excel file. CSLB hopes to enhance this feature in the future to allow searches by geographic radius, as well.

In its first four months in operation, the new "Find My Licensed Contractor" feature accessed more than 231,000 times.
