Contractor License

The requirements to apply for a contractor license will vary from state-to-state and also by what type of contractor you are. For example, a plumber in New Jersey will have different requirements than a landscaper in California. Regardless of the state and trade type, the application process for a contractor license includes examinations and supporting paperwork regarding legal residency, criminal background, and experience in the area of work for which you are applying for a license. You must also formally incorporate your contracting company, and purchase any required insurance or bonds in order to practice your trade.
