Nevada State Contractors Board
The Nevada State Contractors Board is committed to promoting public confidence and trust in the competence and integrity of licensees and to protect the health, safety and welfare of the public.
The Board is empowered with determining the qualifications of applicants prior to licensing, setting forth conditions for licenses, such as limiting the field and scope of the operations of a licensed contractor, bond requirements and establishing maximum contractual limits. The Board is also empowered to promulgate rules and regulations necessary for implementing and enforcing the enabling statute, NRS 624, and to discipline licensees found in violation of the statute.
The procedure for determining applicant qualifications relating to licensure are contained in NRS 624.250 through 624.270. Qualification for a contractors license is determined by written management and trade examinations, extensive and detailed investigation of the applicant’s qualifications, background, ability, experience, competence, general character and established proof of financial responsibility. The process provides some assurance to the Board and to the public that a licensee is competent and qualified at the time of initial licensure.
