CSLB Streamlines License Experience Review Process


SACRAMENTO The Contractors State License Board (CSLB) is the government agency that oversees California’s construction industry and protects consumers by ensuring that license applicants have the minimum qualifications required by law. An important part of this process is verifying and investigating the experience claimed by an applicant. CSLB has a legal mandate to investigate a minimum of 3 percent of applications received for the claimed experience.
Previously, applications and experience claims were reviewed and processed by CSLB’s Licensing division and the formal experience investigations were conducted by CSLB’s Enforcement division. In some cases, this divided process resulted in a duplication of efforts and longer processing times. 
To streamline the process and provide more efficient services to license applicants, the experience investigation program now has been transferred to CSLB’s Licensing division.
The transfer will not change CSLB’s policy as it relates to the experience qualifications required of applicants. As mandated by law, CSLB will continue to require four years of journey-level experience within the last 10 years immediately preceding the submission of the application. In the case of experience verification and investigation, the applicant still must provide documentation to substantiate the experience claimed on his or her application.


CSLB urges consumers to follow these tips before hiring anyone to work on their home:

· Only hire licensed contractors and ask to see their license and a photo ID to verify their identity. California law requires a license for all home improvement contracts with a combined cost of more than $500 for labor and materials.
· Always check the license number on CSLB’s Instant License Check feature.
· Never make a down payment of more than 10 percent of the contract price or $1,000, whichever is less.
· Don’t pay in cash, and don’t let payments get ahead of the work.
· Get at least three bids, check references, get a written contract, and make sure you understand all terms before signing the contract.
· If a contractor has employees, make sure they are covered by a workers’ compensation insurance policy, which is noted on the license detail page on CSLB’s website. Otherwise, if a worker is injured on the job, the property owner could be liable for medical and other expenses.

   The Contractors State License Board operates under the umbrella of the California Department of Consumer Affairs. More information and publications about hiring contractors are available on CSLB’s website or by calling (800) 321-CSLB (2752).
