  How To Get Your Contractors License In Sacramento


Sacramento is known for its Nitro-Powered souped-up vehicles and also for being the home of Arnold (once upon a time). I made up most of that. Sacramento used to be known for its trains. SO that’s cool. And you’re cool. And I’m cool.

We’re all cool.

Hi, I’m the content writer here at Contractor License School, it’s good to meet you.

If you’re trying to get your contractors license and you live in or around Sacramento, you are in the right place.

If you’re an ostrich farmer or a giraffe trainer but you dabble in construction and you’re thinking about getting a license, you’re in the right place.

If you’re a circus performer, you’re probably not in the right place. But you might as well stay for a bit. After all, you’ve made it this far.

Listen, you don’t have to run away and join the circus to make a life for yourself (although everyone loves peanuts and cotton candy and elephants), you can simply get your contractors license.

How much money can you make being a contractor?

All of it. Wait, let me fact check that for second… Yep. All of it.

How Simple Is It?

It’s so simple a child could do it. Although you do have to be over the age of eighteen. Also you have to have four years in the trade. Also, you have to have a valid SSN or ITIN.

And that’s it. If you have those three things, you’re set.

If you’re a child, you might want to run off to the circus. That would be your best bet.

How To Get Your License In Two Easy Steps.

1 – Apply to take the tests. You apply through CSLB. It’s relatively easy. (We’ll walk you through it. It’ll be like Disneyland but without the churros, unless you want to buy some churros).

2 – Pass the tests.

Those are the two main steps.

What about insurance and stuff?

Insurance and stuff comes later. First you must take and pass the tests.

Enroll In Our Course (this course)

We offer an online course as well as a home study package. You save money on the home study package. You can view the differences below.

Remember, Sacramento is known for being one of the largest cities in California.

That means that there is plenty of money (lots and lots) to be made for businesses.

Especially construction. Construction is doing very well in California right now. (we need you)

I’m not so sure about circuses.

I also don’t know why I keep bringing up circuses.


After you pass the state tests, you have to get a surety bond (but we’ll walk you through how that works in our classes) and you have to get a live scan (we explain all of this) and you have to pass an open-book asbestos test (it’s actually really simple).

The entire process from start to finish takes about 3-6 months. Some people get it done in 2.  It kinda depends on how long the state takes to process your application.

But how do I verify my experience, you ask?

You get one or more persons to sign your application (certify) to verify that you have the required four years of experience in the trade in which you are trying to get your license.

And it truly is that simple.

Every once in awhile, in some cases, they require additional verification in the form of W-2s or invoices (if you’re claiming the status of self-employed).

Online Course

Our online course consists of classes that we livestream every Thursday night over Zoom. You’ll get to meet and interact with your teacher. As well, you provide books, practice tests (for the trade and the law) and pre-recorded classes in video and audio format.

Audio format = you can listen to it while you drive. And contractors do a lot of driving, am I right?

I am right.

Home Study

With our Home Study Course, you end up saving a little bit of money. You get all the same stuff you would have gotten with the online course except for the live classes. Instead of live classes, you get access to our prerecorded classes.

Either option will fully prepare you to get your contractors license.

It’s Time.

It’s time to live your dream.

It’s time to take the risk.

The only greater risk would be to not take the risk.

If you don’t take the risk you will forever live wondering what your life would have been like had you taken the risk and gotten your contractors license.

We believe in you.

We’ve graduated thousands of students, and we’re looking forward to graduating you. We’re looking forward to you getting your license.

Full steam ahead.
