What you need to know to get an Oregon Contractors License
- Minimum 18 years of age to apply
- Complete 16 hours of the required training through a state-approved pre-license educator.
- After you complete all the mandatory training, the education provider will report your completion to CCB, and then CCB will alert PSI Services (the Agency that administers the state exam) that you are eligible for the contractor exam. If you have questions about this process, give us a call, click on the Chat button to speak with a live rep on our website, or email the CCB directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Once PSI has confirmed your eligibility, they will allow you to schedule and take the official PSI Oregon Contractor exam to qualify for a CCB license. It is important to check back frequently with your account on PSI to see they have confirmed your training was received. The PSI candidate bulletin gives information about test locations and procedures. You can click here to register an account and schedule a test date.
*Take Note: An appointed Responsible Managing Individual may take the training and sit for the exam as well (RMI is the person who owns the business or manages its construction activities).
- Immediately after taking the test with PSI, you will receive the results. If you passed:
- You'll need to file your corporation, LLC, and/or your assumed business name with the Oregon Secretary of State, and
- Obtain bonding and liability insurance (see the question below 'What is a surety bond?')
- With those documents in hand, fill out the CCB license application entirely - submit along with your test score, original bond & insurance certificates - and $325 required application fee.
*Take Note: If the exam was passed, the application must be submitted within 24 months or training will lapse and you will be required to retake the course again & then the exam.
We provide more details about these steps within our training and you can also call to speak with our knowledgeable customer service team (Click on the green Chat button below to ask a question to a live representative).
