As a licensed specialty concrete contractor how does this affect us in this County ? Will we still be able to do flatwork concrete not requiring engineering ? Will driveway removal and replacement be allowed as this is typically just a Right of Way permit ?

Hello Christine,

Come July 2023 you will not be able to renew this license, and you will need to obtain a General Contractor license. We have the books and classes to prepare you to pass the trade and business exams. For more information on this license please click the link below.

Although this county is still regulating licenses, come July 2023, the county will no longer be able to regulate Specialty licenses. Therefore, you will not need a license anymore. However, if you still need a license to show your customers, insurance companies, and larger contractor that you are a legitimate contractor, we recommend obtaining a Florida Residential Contractor License. Below I have attached a link where you can find more information on how to obtain this license. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact us at 866-986-7978.
