To get a New Mexico Contractor License, you must have a minimum age of seventeen (17) years old. Every license must have at least one qualifying party for each classification of work. You may determine the type of license and certification you need to do the job you plan to perform by confirming with the New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department. Check with PSI to make sure that the name you intend to use on the license is available. Company name cannot reflect a trade outside the classification scope of the license. You must submit a completed packet with the correct application, certificate, and license fees.
Now that the application has been completed you must prepare yourself to take the exams. We have books that will help you pass this test. Once your packet has been accepted, and your eligibility cleared, your license will be issued, and you will receive it by USPS. Your license will be effective for three years from the date of issuance. All licenses must be renewed to remain active. Unlike many other states, there is no requirement for liability insurance coverage in New Mexico.
