How do I get my Louisiana Contractor License?
There are two steps in getting licensed as residential or commercial building contractor in the State of Louisiana:
- Submit an application to the State Licensing Board for Contractors along with the supporting documents. You can obtain an application at the State web site: http://www.lslbc.louisiana.gov/default.htm
- Upon receipt of the application, the State Licensing Board for Contractors will send you an examination scheduling notice with the date of your exam. You will be required to pass a Business and Law exam and the Trade exam for the license you are seeking.
Any construction project of $50,000 or more ($1 or more for hazardous) must be performed by a licensed contractor, even the home owners themselves. There are no provisions in the law to prevent an owner from applying for and being issued a contractor’s license.
Is Continued Education required in order to keep my license?
Yes. You are required to complete six hours per year by your original licensing date to renew your Louisiana Contractor License. This increased in January, 2012 from four hours to six hours each year.

What happens if I don’t renew my license by my renewal date?
A delinquent penalty of $50 for late renewal of Commercial and Residential contractor licenses may be assessed 15 days following the expiration date.
Failure to renew your license within six months after your renewal date will result in forfeiture of your renewal rights and you will have to start all over.
How do I show the State of Louisiana that I’ve completed my annual continued education?
Simply mail a copy of your Certificate of Completion from our course to theState Licensing Board for Contractors 2525 Quail Drive Baton Rouge, LA 70808.
You DO NOT need to send the Continued Education Form because we have all of the necessary information printed on your certificate.
Is the NASCLA Accredited Commercial Contractor license accepted in Louisiana?
Yes. The NASCLA-Accredited Exam replaces the Trades exam for Commercial Contractors.
The NASCLA-Accredited Commercial Contractors exam is accepted in eight States: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. This means that by passing one exam, you can easily become licensed to do commercial work in all eight states. Most of the states will require you to also pass the Business and Law exam for that State, but you will not be required to pass a separate Commercial Trades exam.
When you pass the NASCLA Accredited Examination for Commercial General Building Contractors, you will be listed in the NASCLA National Examination Database. You will then have this information available when you apply in any of the states that accept it. You may also need to take each states’ specific business/law/project management exam in addition to the NASCLA exam.
