Helping California Contractors Pass their State Licensing Exam the FIRST time since 1953!!!

California Contractor's License Exam

As per the law, anyone in California who contracts to conduct work on a project that is valued at $500 or more, including labor and material, must hold a current, valid license from the Contractors State License Board (CSLB).

The CSLB provides licenser in 43 different contractor classifications, including general contractors, swimming pool contractors, painters, electricians, plumbers, landscapers and many others. Depending on what sort of projects you want to oversee, you could go for a general or a specialty contractor’s license.

A general building contractor, for instance, would oversee projects and coordinate with specific subcontractors. Specialty or subcontractors are usually hired to perform a particular task.

Prerequisites for the CA Contractor's Exam

Before you can appear for the California State Contractors License Exam, there are a few requirements that you will need to take care of. First, you have to be at least 18 years of age and have at least four years of construction experience, within the last 10 years. (You could also appear for this exam if you have two years of work experience with a four-year college degree)
