If an applicant does not have a 660 credit score at the time they apply, they will be required to obtain some kind of security.  The security can be in the form of a surety bond or letter of credit.  Surety bonds are popular and very easy to obtain, and many contractors chose to use them as their form of security.  Those applicants who do not have 660 credit and have not completed the 14-hour financial responsibility course must submit a bond in the amount of:

  • $20,000 for Division l applicants (applicants applying for a General Contractor, Building Contractor, or Residential Contractor License)
  • $10,000 for Division ll applicants (applicants for types of contractor licenses not otherwise listed in Division 1)

However, these amounts may be reduced to $10,000 for Division I contractors and $5,000 for Division II contractors by completing a board-approved financial responsibility course.
