Whether you recently lost your contractor’s license or your contractor’s license expired many years ago, it is important to look at the conditions you need to satisfy in order to reinstate your license. According to the Department of Labor and Industry, contractors who want to have their license reinstated must pay fees, fill out an application and submit a background check.
Contractors also need to pass an examination or pursue continuing education in order to restore their license.
Forms, fees and license reinstatement
The DLI outlines a number of requirements that apply to contractors who wish to have their license restored. For example, you will need to submit a Bureau of Criminal Apprehension Criminal Background Check form along with a Residential Building Contractor License Application.
On top of submitting these forms, to reinstate your license you also have to pay the Contractor Recovery Fund fee as well as the license fee.
Other requirements that come with license reinstatement
Aside from financial matters, contractors need to satisfy other conditions in order to have their license restored. For example, you will need to provide the original results after passing an exam no more than two years before your reinstatement application or a certificate of course completion after completing continuing education. For every period after the termination of your license, you need to complete seven hours of continuing education.
In order to secure your contractor’s license, make sure you satisfy all requirements and submit necessary documents. It is vital to approach this process carefully and make sure that you address any areas of concern beforehand.
