For most jobs, you just drop off an application or resume and hope to get an interview. But for some jobs…. Well, some jobs you really have to earn. You know the type of job we’re talking about. No one handed you anything. You’ve had to figure out how to get the job done and get it done right. By watching, emulating, and learning on the job site, you’re becoming an invaluable asset. But, in order to become a great contractor you need to earn your California state contractors license.


The Contractor State License Board (CSLB) is a government agency whose stated goal is to protect consumers by licensing and regulating California’s construction industry. They offer 43 different licensing classifications to contractors covering a wide variety of construction skills. They aim to educate consumers about construction law and contractors and detail how the law protects them.

What’s more, the CSLB administers the California state contractors license exam, issues the licenses, and investigates complaints against both licensed and unlicensed contractors. The agency has the power to issue citations, suspend or revoke licenses, and can even seek sanctions against license violators.
