California Contractors License Bond Information

The Contractors State License Board of California requires contractors to have in place an active $15,000 surety bond. The bond is a requirement for new licensure, license renewal and reactivation of a license.

A Bond of Qualifying Individual may also be required for some contractors. These bonds, when required, are in addition to the contractors bond. The required bond amount on these bonds is $12,500.

The CSLB also has one additional bond requirement for contractors, the Disciplinary bond. This bond is required to reinstate or reissue a license that was revoked due to a violation of CA Contractors License law. The Disciplinary bond amount is determined by the Registrar. The amount can range from $15,000 to $150,000. The Registrar requires these bonds to be current for at least 2 years.
