Oregon Updates Construction License Application

When was the Oregon Construction License Application updated?

In January 2017, the Construction Contractors Board update the Oregon construction license application.  While few changes were made, all new construction license applicants must use the revised form.  Prior application versions may be declined which could delay the issuance of your license.

Where all the applications updated?

Yes, all new Oregon construction license applications were updated.  You can find the new applications listed below:

You cannot use these applications to renew your license.  However, you can renew your license by visiting the CCB’s website.

Are the surety bond forms the same?

Yes, as of the date of this article, the last change to the Oregon contractor bond form was made on September 28, 2015.  Additionally, you still need to provide a power of attorney and your surety bond agent must sign it.  It’s also important that your name appears on the bond exactly as it does with the Corporate Division.  You must also submit the bond to the CCB within 60 days after it has been issued.  If not, we must issue another bond with a new effective date.  If you’re interested in a bond quote, please complete our online surety bond application.  We can issue most bonds the same you apply.

Can I still use the old Oregon Construction License Application if I applied before the revision date?

You can use the old application only if you sent it prior to January 1, 2017.  The Oregon CCB will only accept the new application after that date.  However, most of the information they need remains the same.  You are still required to provide proof of insurance, a surety bond, application fees, and information specific to your company.  Additionally, you must use blue or black ink to complete it.  Please contact us at 888-572-6637 if you would like help with your Oregon Contractor License Application.
