Contractor Licensing Department
The Contractor Licensing Department manages the business of the Pinellas County Construction Licensing Board. We license contractors to ensure workers in the County have the skills required to perform their work. We monitor contractors’ liability and workers’ compensation insurance to protect citizens and workers in the construction trade. We enforce Florida and County statutes and ordinances, including arbitrating building code disputes, amending codes and protecting the Coastal Construction Control Line.
The Pinellas County Construction Licensing Board has been licensing contractors in Pinellas County since 1973. We’re in our 50th year. Visit the PCCLB online.
As a professional licensing board, the PCCLB is responsible for maintaining licensing standards, ensuring compliance with those standards and sanctioning contractors who do not perform to the standards. We investigate complaints against licensed contractors. Learn more.
Each year we license and register more than 13,500 contractors in a wide range of construction trades. Contractors must renew their licenses every year by September 30. Find a list of qualified contractors on the PCCLB website.
