A qualifying examination is not an occupational license, and does not grant the holder of such examination the authority to practice general contracting. Individuals may be licensed by their personal examinations or the examination of a responsible managing employee. Partnerships and corporations are licensed by examination of a responsible managing officer or member of the personnel of the applicant. If the qualifying party leaves, however, the licensee must replace the qualifying party within ninety (90) days or the license is canceled.
Licensees should not allow unlicensed persons, firms or corporations to use the general contractor’s license with the licensee’s permission. Although licensed general contractors may have an ownership interest in an unlicensed entity, the unlicensed contractor may not use a general contractor’s license for any reason. Violators of the general contractor laws and regulations may be disciplined by the Licensing Board for General Contractors for allowing the use of a license by an unlicensed person or other entities. Appropriate sanctions may include suspension or revocation of license.
