How to get your D-16 Contractor License

Lock In Your License

That was cheesy. But you get the point. 

You’re trying to get your D-16 Contractor license? 

That is a good thing. 

 Give us a call. 


How To Get Your D-16 Contractors License

Where would we be without locks. 

Probably still in the stone ages. 

That is why getting your contractor license is so important. 

So that we don’t go back to the stone ages without locks. 


 If you’ve made it this far you are probably pretty serious. 

I respect that. 

There are three requirements you must fulfill in order to be a contractor. 

1. Must have 4 years of experience doing D-16 work (raising floors) 

2. Must be over 18 

3. Must have a valid SSN or ITIN 

You probably read that and thought ‘what, that’s it?’ 

Yes. That’s it. 

And more importantly. You’re it. 

You’re it. You’re ready. Ready to make a change in your career. Turn into the Contractor Entrepreneur. 

For more clarification you can check out the CSLB’s website on experience requirements for the exam. 


We’ll I have all this experience. Best put it to good use. Makes sense right?

Chances are you have more than 4 years of experience. Maybe even 10 years. Maybe even 20. Nay I say 30 years of experience. 

But throw that out the window because in order to get your license you need to pass a ‘law and business’ exam. 

But you’re not a lawyer, how could you possibly know contract law? 

Let me introduce you to your best friend. The Contractor License School. 


Aka. Your savior for getting your D-16 Contractor License.

Aka. 2023 pro baking champions.

Our job is to prepare you for the exam. We’re experts in the law because we’ve been studying it for years (20 to be exact). 

We decided to help you guys with this information so we combined our efforts with the boring know how of lawyers to ensure you get everything you need to pass the law and business exam. 

Oh and by the way the test is written by lawyers so you’re getting the insider secrets and experience of thousands of passed contractors in our material. 

Our material. 

1. Homestudy – Where you teach yourself using different books, videos and online materials. 
2. Online – Tune into our live classes and participate online. 
3. In Class – Join one of our schools for in person lessons and attention. 

From my personal experience I see the most students pass and succeed through an inperson course. 

This is because there is more accountability physically going to a location. 

That being said everyone learns different and only you know yourself best. 

Give us a call for more information. 


How do you verify your experience?

Here’s the nitty gritty details. The ones I know you were thinking but probably too scared to raise your hand and ask. 

You verify your experience by filling out the glorious ORIGINAL CONTRACTOR APPLICATION. 

It’s a long form basically saying you are a person, you are a contractor, you are starting a busines (or being an RME – Resident Management Employee), and you have at least 4 years of experience. 

That last part is verified through a description of work (written by you) and a wet signature. That signature can be provided by a number of resources including but not limited to another D-16 contractor, employer, homeowner, etc. 

When the CSLB sees this they are going to think “wow this is a really good contractor who is experienced, prepared with an S Corp, and ready to get their contractor license. Let’s get this guy/girl a test date asap (rocky).”

Just like like. Well maybe not exactly. 

But you know what I mean. 

How long does it take?

Getting your license takes longer than making a perfect panini but less than the average Fallout 76 loading time. 

So what you’re looking at is about 3 months of dedication. It’s like buds. Except once a week for two hours. And you get plenty of sleep. And there’s no blood sweat or tears. 

So really it’s nothing like buds and everything like a contractor license school where you learn from an instructor once a week. Or online through the livestream.

We suggest you send your application one month into the course. That way as you wait the two months to hear back from the state to schedule your test you can still study and prepare without pushing it off to much. 

That is why we say 3 months. However life happens and we know that. It’s best to allow yourself some time to focus on preparing for the future. You’ll thank yourself and us later. 

What’s the best business entity?

S Corps. 

We cover this in the course so I won’t take too much time talking about it here. 

But the point you need to know is S Corps are perfect for contractors just like Tom Brady is perect for the Patriots. 

Bond, oh my?!

That’s right you need to get a bond. 

But just one so you don’t need to worry too much. 

 You can get them from a insurance provider. They’re not that expensive. At least compared to how much you’ll be making. 

But all these details are not imporant compared to what truly matters. Getting your license. Simply starting. 


The greatest thing you can do for yourself is learn something new. 

Take the chance. Level up. 

Start the business. Make massive money. Be your own boss. Find freedom. 

That is what getting a license is all about.
