How To Get Your California Contractors License From Home

while listening to Kanye, of course.

Did you know it’s possible to get your contractors license from home?

Well, almost completely possible.

Allow me to explain (and allow me to take several smoke breaks during the writing of this article. don’t worry, I don’t actually smoke. but I do like to take breaks. also, I’m switching to decaf. maybe. I’m kinda jittery right now. mostly because I’m so excited to explain to you how you can get your contractors license from home).

So California is home to many great things: endangered eagles, earthquakes, and the San Fransisco 49ers. And Los Angeles. And the Sonoma Valley (I think). And even Sacramento. Which is our state capitol.

Okay, let me get to the point.

Okay, I’m back.

And I’m gonna watch Back to the Future after this.
Michael J. Fox is a great actor.

So, you can’t technically get your license completely from home because you do have to take the CSLB tests.


You have to pass two tests through the CSLB, and they administer them in person. One test covers construction law and one covers your trade.


Only this:

You have to have… hold up… taking a coffee break.

Okay, I’m back.
And I’m going to watch The Matrix after this.

You have to have 4 years of experience in your trade to qualify for licensure.

That’s about it.

And you have to have one person sign your application to verify you have the 4 years of experience.

So that’s pretty simple.


So, in order to pass the tests, you’ll probably want to study. And you can definitely study from home.

We offer home study packages that you can choose from.

Basically, in a gist, we provide you all the study material you’ll need to be able to pass the tests.


It all starts with a cup of coffee.

Maybe a few pushups.

But here’s how it works. We provide you with a cocktail or valuable material:

  • Access to our recorded Law Class Videos (videos we took all four of our law classes).
  • Our Law Book, which coincides with the classes.
  • A Trade Study Book
  • Trade Study DVDs
  • Trade Study Practice Tests
  • Oh, and also Law Practice Tests

So basically you watch the LAW CLASSES and follow along in your LAW MANUAL.
And then you watch the TRADE DVDs and follow along in your TRADE BOOK.

Then you take the practice tests.
There are practice tests in the book as well as online.

And, if you do all the work we provide for you, we can guarantee you’ll pass the tests. Unless you’re a carrier pigeon. If you’re a carrier pigeon, that would be weird. I’m not even sure how you would order our material or read. Or study, for that matter.

That’s beside the point.

– Online practice tests.

I just wanted to make that into a bullet point to emphasize the fact that if you pass our online practice tests we do, indeed-o, guarantee-o, that you’ll pass the state tests.


Now that you have all the critical information, I’m going to take you on my coffee break with me where we will reflect on our favorite things about California, other than the DMV, of course, for obvious reasons.

Here are some of my favorite things:

Newport Beach.
Huntington Beach
Mission Beach
Long Beach
La Jolla
Southern Cal in general
San Diego
San Jose
Anaheim (in a big way)
Santa Ana

And so much more.
After I’m done writing this article, I’m going to watch The Dark Knight.

The Grand Finale

Now you know how it all works.

You can really and truly study for your contractors tests from home. So if that’s your vibe, give it a shot.

The end.

PS – California is doing its thing.
