The state of Florida requires a contractors license prior to bidding on any work. The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation issues licenses in various classifications, including:

Per Florida state guidelines, candidates are required to pass two examinations: business and finance and their trade, both of which are open book.  In addition, candidates must show proof of four years of experience, or a combination of education and experience, proof of financial stability, as well as liability and worker’s compensation insurance. Contractors register with the state and also apply for a trade license at the local, city or county level. We offer online exam prep, books, and continuing education to help you obtain and maintain your Florida Contractors License with several license types to choose from. Includes No-Pass No-Pay and pricing guarantees.

License Requirements

The Florida Construction Industry Licensing Board offers many different contractor license types. As different license types allow for varying work parameters, requirements and supporting documents may change slightly for your individual application process. However, the board will require most applicants to:

  • Be 18 years of age.
  • Show proof of financial solvency — Including submitting proof of a FICO credit score of a minimum of 660. You may purchase a surety bond if your credit score is lower.
  • Scan and comply with an electronic fingerprint. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement offers a list of approved Livescan Device Vendors.
  • Provide proof of general liability and workers’ compensation insurance.
  • Pass a Florida State Construction Examination.
  • Fill out your application.
  • Pay all application and licensing fees.
  • Several licenses, including the general contractor licenses below, will have additional requirements to be met.

Does A Handyman Need A License

According to Florida state law, a general handyman does not need a license to perform basic repair and maintenance tasks for homeowners. However, if an unlicensed handyman does work that falls into the scope of a licensed contractor, he or she is subject to fines and prosecution. It’s better to be safe than sorry if you’re considering handyman work, so check with your licensing department for specific rules.
