Contractor Licensing Division

The purpose of the Contractor Licensing Division is to protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of The City Of Port St. Lucie by regulating the construction industry.

A Contractor’s License is obtained through the City Of Port St. Lucie Contractor Licensing Division (local/registered) or through the Department of Business & Professional Regulation (DBPR) (state certified).

Contractor licenses issued locally in the City Of Port St. Lucie (Contractor’s Trade Classification List), are known as Certificate of Competency. Certificates of Competency are obtained by successfully passing an approved PROMETRIC Trade exam and Business & Law exam, and submitting a completed Application for Certificate of Competency, including verification of experience, along with all other required paperwork and fees. An approval is then determined by the Contractor’s Examining Board (CEB).

State Licenses obtained through DBPR are known as Certified Contractor. Any Certified Contractor required to obtain a Building Permit in the City Of Port St. Lucie may elect to submit a completed Computer Member Application in order to streamline the permitting process. Should a Certified Contractor elect not to become a computer member, the qualifier must submit in person a copy of his/her drivers license, state certification, general liability insurance & workers compensation insurance with each permit applied for.

Licensing requirements are regulated by Florida State Statute Chapter 489 and City of Port St Lucie Ordinance Chapter 150.505. The City Of Port St. Lucie Contractor’s Examining Board (CEB) is responsible for approving all local applications for licensure, requests for change of status, and any disciplinary action taken against a City licensed contractor. The CEB meets the second Thursday of every other month (unless otherwise posted).
