License, certificate or registration application (3)

Application fee:  $0.00


A state law enacted in 2012 requires registration of commercial and residential building construction and improvement contractors who are not already licensed or bonded through DLI. It does not apply to companies or workers in any industry other than building construction.
This new law replaces the Independent Contractor Exemption Certificate (ICEC) program with a simplified two-year pilot project for registration of construction contractors. To begin the registration process, click on the "Next" button below.

This registration page is NOT where you register to take license exams administered by DLI. Information on registering to take a license exam can be found at www.dli.mn.gov/ccld/Exam.asp.
If you have already been approved to take and exam and have your application number issued by DLI, you can schedule your exam here secure.doli.state.mn.us/CCLDExams/default.aspx".

More information about registration requirements can be found at www.dli.mn.gov/register.

Note: If contractors are performing any construction work for which a license, certification or separate registration is required under Minn. Stat. chapter 326B (i.e. Boiler, Electrical, Elevator, HPP, Plumbing or Residential Building Contractor) they must apply for a license and may not submit a Contractor Registration. Contact CCLD's Licensing Services at (651) 284-5031 (personal licenses) or (651) 284-5034 (business licenses) for more information.
