Wall Certificate/ Pocket Card
Changing a Business Name: You may change the business name of your license if the new name does not indicate a change in business entity, the new name does not indicate that you qualify for a classification other than the one(s) in which you are currently licensed, and the new name does not indicate a personnel change.
Changing the Business Name of a Corporation or Limited Liability Company (LLC): Before the Contractors State License Board (CSLB) can change your corporate or LLC name, you must first change the corporate or LLC name with the Secretary of State's Office (SOS). If you are simply adding a "DBA" (for a fictitious business name) to the existing corporate or LLC name, you do not need to make any changes with SOS; but please be sure to check the box in section 3 to indicate that you are adding a DBA to an existing business name.
Ordering a Wall Certificate and/or Pocket License: You may order a wall certificate and/or pocket license only if your license is in good standing, currently renewed, and has no current suspensions on record. Submit $25 for each wall certificate and/or pocket license. Attach a money order or a personal, business, certified, or cashier's check made payable to the Registrar of Contractors. Do not send cash. Please be aware that there is a $25 service charge for each dishonored check.
Changing an Address: You cannot change an address using this form. Use the Application to Change Business or Personnel Address form (13L-30) to change the address on a license or application. There is no fee to change an address. You are required to notify the CSLB Registrar within 90 days of any change in address. (Business and Professions Code [BPC] section 7083).
