ASK THE BUSINESS LICENSE GURU

By David Yount

Question:

“How can I apply for a General Contractor License?”

Answer:

Most general contractor licenses, which are typically issued by a state's Contractor’s Board, must be applied for by mail. Application fees range from $0 - $900.00. In 33 states, a general contractor requires licensing at the state level, and in 18 states, a general contractor may require licensing at the local level.

The construction industry is one of the most heavily regulated in the United States, and each state has unique contractor licensing laws, specialty classifications, and application requirements.
