General Contractors Exams and Licenses

The CSLB, Contractors State Licensing Board of California calls on all contractors to have a California Contractors License before they get to embark on any construction project in the state. This applies even for supervision projects. It must as well be noted that this is a regulation that actually applies to the entire state of California.

A verbatim of the rendition of who and what a general contractor is as per the board’s terms goes something as follows; any person or business principally working with any structure “built, being built or to be built, for the support, shelter and enclosure of persons or animals…or to superintend the whole or part thereof.” Generally speaking there is a bit of legwork when it comes to the need to procure your CA general contractor’s license but with the steps in this guide, you can be sure to have your CA contractors’ license in no time.

We first take a look at the examination requirements. The applicants for the general contractors’ license must pass a written examination. By and large, the exams essentially cover the areas in the business of contracting and the state laws of California that apply to this profession for regulation purposes. This exam is actually a multiple choice exam and has four choices for each question. Qualified candidates for these exams must have had at least four years of experience in contracting work over the past ten years. The experience must have been received serving as a journeyman, foreman or some other supervisor position. You as well stand qualified for these exams if you happen to have taken and completed an apprenticeship program that is CSLB approved.

You can make use of the available study guides with sample questions to get readied for these exams. These guides actually happen to be so good with a breakdown on the topics that are covered in the exams, the test taking approaches, sample questions and some other essential resources for doing further study.

The other feature that you need to know about these exams is the fact that there are actually some available exam exemptions to these exams. You stand a chance at exam exemption if at all you happen to have been active in the construction industry and trade for the past five years, actively so. You may as well qualify for an exemption to the exemption if at all you are a general contractor with such reciprocity based on your licensure in some of the states such as Nevada, Utah and Arizona.
