What Do I Need?

All individuals or business entities intending to engage in construction work in Utah must obtain a state issued contractor license. At least one individual must be selected to act as the qualifier for the license, which requires the individual to pass the necessary tests prior to applying for the license. Each license requires a Business Law exam to be passed, and most licenses require a trade specific exam also. All contractor licenses (with the exception of electrical and plumbing) require two years of legally valid experience under a licensed contractor. If an individual’s experience is gained in Utah, then the experience must be either as a W-2’d employee of, or as a registered partner in a licensed company. W-2’s or K-1’s are required as part of the application. If an individual is licensed in another state as a sole proprietor, then Schedule C’s must be submitted with the application. 1099’s are never acceptable. General contractor licenses (E100, B100 and R100) require that at least half of the needed experience is in a supervisory position. Either a 2 or 4 year Construction Management degree accounts for the 1 year supervisory experience requirement for the general classifications.
