Re: California Licensing


I think it already fell off the DMV record because it’s been so long. I now live 7 hours away from the county where it occurred, and they said it cost $130 to request the record by mail. I already went to my local police station and paid almost $50 to get the DOJ record, but it was not on there for some reason.

Re: California Licensing


Gentlemen,

Regarding the disclosure form... if you don't know the case number, the exact date of the infractions, fines you paid.... no big deal. You can guesstimate on the date or just list the year.

Complete the details of the crime and your rehab efforts and you'll be fine. The point is just to submit the form, the reporting agencies will provide the cslb with all the specifics.

Include both even though it the one didn't appear on the DOJ report you got. Better to over divulge than under.

Re: California Licensing


Hi, I am wondering if anyone here can share your experience of preparing for the trade and law exams of the Class B general contractor license in California?

I have 4 years' journeyman experience and I have worked on painting, framing, wiring, plumbing rough-in and finish, and flooring in other states and in Canada. What is the best way for me to prepare for the exams? And is it necessary to get enrolled in a class?

Any share of experience, books or classes will be appreciated!

Re: California Licensing


Hello xieaaron,

That's good that you have the minimum experience... the question is... was it obtained as an employee of a contractor who holds the B or similar out of state/country license?

The cslb prefers that B experience is submitted as an employee. If it's submitted as self-employed, they'll ask for permits and have you fill out a bunch of project list forms to prove your experience.

I offer an excellent study prep kit. Click on my guru guy to the left for my website.

Thanks, as always, Griz!

Guru, thanks. About 1/4 of my experience is from self-employed, and 3/4 from being employed. I know how to do the work that I have done previously else where, but the regulation and code in California might be different.

I will fore sure check our your website!

Re: California Licensing


Hello License Guru, I was wondering if the CSLB would have access to an out of state felony conviction that was reduced to a misdemeanor.


Do I have put it down as a felony if it has been reduced to a misdemeanor?
