How to obtain your Builders License Application
After an applicant has completed the 60 hour pre-licensure education requirement, he or she may obtain an Individual Residential Builder and Maintenance & Alteration Contractor License Application on the Builders website at www.michigan.gov/builders, under "Forms & Publications". The license application must be completed and submitted with the application fee, and a completed Residential Builder and Maintenance & Alteration Contractor Pre-licensure Education Reporting Form. A copy of the official certificate(s) of completion given to you by the course provider must be attached to the pre-licensure education reporting form for each course you have completed. The certificate(s) must document 60 hours of approved pre-licensure courses. A course will not be accepted without the certificate(s) attached. The pre-licensure reporting form is also available on the Builders website. Once the Builders Unit receives an application, it will be reviewed to ensure that the applicant meets all licensing requirements.
The requirements for licensure
- Successfully complete 60 hours of approved prelicensure education
- Submit an Individual Residential Builder and Maintenance & Alteration Contractor License Application and the application fee, and copies of the official certificate(s) of completion given by the course provider for each course completed
- Be at least 18 years old
- Be of good moral character
- Successfully complete the Residential Builder or Maintenance & Alteration Contractor examination once all other requirements are met
An applicant must meet all requirements for licensure before receiving approval by the Department to take the examination that is required to obtain a Residential Builder or Maintenance & Alteration Contractor license. Once the applicant receives an authorization to test, he or she may contact PSI Services LLC, the exam provider, at 1-800-733-9267, or go to the website at www.psiexams.com, to register for the examination. After the applicant passes both portions of the examination, a license will be issued as an Individual Residential Builder or Individual Maintenance & Alteration Contractor. The individual license will allow an individual to perform work as a sole proprietor, under their personal name or an assumed name from their County Clerk's Office. The individual license may NOT be used for a corporation, limited liability company or partnership. If you are conducting business as a corporation, limited liability company, or partnership, you must also apply for a second license which will be for the company. You may obtain a Corporation, Limited Liability Company, or Partnership Residential Builder and Maintenance & Alteration Contractor License Application on the Builders website at www.michigan.gov/builders, under "Forms & Publications" or contact the Builders Unit at (517) 241-9288.
