Hi License Guru, I am hoping you can help me figure out what my most recent update to my application means:

12/09/2013 APPLICATION RECEIVED
12/13/2013 PRINTED ACKNLDGMNT LTTR TO APPLCNT
01/08/2014 APPLICATION REJECTED FOR CORRECTION
01/08/2014 SPEC PROJ - EXPERIENCE VERIFICATION
01/08/2014 NEED COPIES OF PERMITS, CONTRACTS
01/08/2014 AND FINAL INSPECTION REPORTS
03/13/2014 DOCS RECEIVED SENT TO SCAN
03/18/2014 APPLICATION SENT TO LICENSE DEPUTY
03/27/2014 ROUTED TO EXP ANALYST FOR REJT LTR

Does the last line mean that my application is totally rejected or will they ask for more documentation? Also, does it mean that it is already rejected before the experience analyst actually looks at my application?

Thank you!

Why not call up the Powers That Be and ask them?

It's a State agency... more to the point... it's a California State agency... They're not too keen on answering their phones.

greenprinter... that means that they are going to ask you for more documentation. I think they believe that when they ask for docs the first time... people hold some back just for the fun of it.

The app isn't dead yet. If you can't provide something they deem worthy (don't ask what they deem worthy because they really have no clue what they're looking at), they could send your app to enforcement for investigation... where an investigator will ask for the same documentation Licensing asked you for.

Does any part of this process sound stupid yet? :censored:

They're latest thing is to send people to the exams and send the app to investigation at the same time.

I sent an email to two of the higher up idiots today asking for the rule, regulation, or law that gives them this authority/ability... I got no reply. SHOCKER!!

What does this mean?

Hi,

I am on this website because I am a little frustrated with the application process. I am trying to get a class A license. I have sent them for transcripts, 6 years of W-2's and 1 month worth of paystubs for March 2014. Does this mean my application got sent to the deputy for analysis?

Hello yogi817.

Welcome to CT. Yes, your app and docs were sent to someone for review. But all A class applicants (along with B, C10 and a few others) all go thru this process. I see they gave you 24 months for your education. Now they'll want to see at least 2 yrs of field experience. 6 yrs of w-2s may/may not be enough. My experience would suggest that they will ask for more documentation.

Hi Phil! Thanks for your response. What kind of work experience do you think they want to see?

My employer has a class A license, but I can't ask him to submit any documentation. (keeping my fingers crossed that they won't call him). The reason I want the license is to open my own business. He would never vouch for me as I could end up being his competition.

Hi Phil, thanks for your help yesterday. I have faxed the NO contact employer letter to cslb yesterday.

It has been a week since my application got routed to an 'experience analyst'. I plan to give them one more week. Do you know who I can call and email (for paper trail)? I believe the app is out of the tech person's hand at this point.

I am a little ahead of myself, but i want to ask you this. I already got 2 years of credit from school, so I really just need 2 years of experience. If they deny my application for any reason or ask for the same docs again, do you think it is wise to hire a lawyer to deal with them? Can you refer a lawyer who is knowledgable dealing with cslb and who knows about their ridiculous 'rules & regulations'? Or do you think hiring a lawyer would make them angry and give me a harder time?

I am planning to bid on some big projects early next year. I don't want the application process to linger on for months like some of the people on here. Without the license, I won't be able to start my business and bid on those projects.

Having an attorney wouldn't necessarily help you at this stage. With a lawsuit being filed, or in a hearing, not much an atty could do for you but represent you when communicating with the cslb.

You could contact your local state representative. They will contact the cslb on your behalf. Others who have gone this route on my recommendation have achieved positive results.

I believe the email to use is [email protected]. Will they respond to you??? Nobody knows.

I'm sure you'll get one of two letters. 1) your test date has been set, or 2) they'll give you the opportunity to withdraw, use a different qualifier, or send the to investigation where they'll ask for the same documentation all over again.

I had to go meet with a senator to get my license expedited.
They told me 6 weeks. I had everything submitted and passed. They still said 6 weeks for processing.
After meeting with the senator, I had it in TWO days..
That was back in the 90's. everyone tells me it's LOTS faster now

Hi Phil,
this email address doesnt work ([email protected]). It got bounced back. Do you have an alternative email?

I don't know how I could get a meeting with a local state rep. so I am going write a letter/email to them in a few weeks.
