Before you can apply for your electrical contractors license, you must meet the following experience requirements:

- Social Security number or ITIN
- Be at least 18 years old*
Don’t have 4 years of electrical experience?

In order to obtain your electrical contractors license, you are required to pass the Trade examination as well as the Law & Business exam.
*Even though you can apply for an electrical contractors license when you are 18 years old, it is recommended that you be at least 23 years old due to the experience requirement.
