Contractor Campus

Books & Classes for your Contractor's License

Contractor License for Paving in Lee County (GITS©)

Lee County Paving Contractors can construct roads, airport runways and aprons, parking lots, driveways, sidewalks, curb and gutter, property line walls, storm drainage facilities and incidental excavating, clearing, grading, sealing and coating. If you're exclusively interested in the installation of pavers this might not be the proper license for you, please consider the Lee County Paver Block contractor's license instead. Please note that the scope of work of a paving contractor's license is much bigger than that of a paver contractor.
