New Mexico Contractor Licenses

All state licenses are issued by the New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department (NMRLD). The Construction Industries Division regulates the General Construction, Electrical, LP Gas, and, Mechanical and Plumbing categories; each category has a specific Bureau. Contracting activities under these classifications are defined in the Construction Industries Licensing Act, NMSA 1978, Section 60-13-3 . Furthermore, Manufactured Housing is its own division.

In New Mexico, licensing is mandatory to ensure safety, quality, and professionalism in every construction project. Therefore, contracting without a license is against the law.

Examination services are conducted byPSI©. Applicants pass with a score of 75%. General Construction, Electrical, LP Gas, and Mechanical and Plumbing contractors are required to pass a Business and Law examination. For categories that have a journeyperson license, this certificate is required if applying for a contractor license.

General Construction

The General Construction licenses are issued by the General Building Bureau. All applications for licenses and examinations must be submitted through PSI© (business and law examination will be needed as well). Approved licenses have 3-year effectiveness from the date of issuance.

The Construction Industries Division (CID) issues the licenses to qualified entities that are owned or that employ certified Qualifying Parties in the General Construction category. Once obtaining a license, contracting can only be done within the scope of the chosen trade.

For further information on becoming a Qualifying Party, visit PSI©. While navigating through all these licenses, it is useful to understand the meaning of the different acronyms. Recall that G stands for general construction, E stands for electrical, and M stands for mechanical/plumbing. These first letters are typically followed by an A, B, F, or an S, which stand for asphalt, building, fixed works, and specialties.
