Utah Contractor License

Utah Contractor Licenses are issued by the Utah Department of Commerce Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (commonly known as the DOPL). The DOPL is partnered with ProV© to administer testing for Utah contractors. The Utah Contractor Business and Law exam is now offered in both English and Spanish. Utah does not have reciprocity with any other state. Utah allows for licensure by endorsement.
