The Contractors State License Board licenses and regulates California’s construction industry including electrical contractors, swimming pool contractors, and 41 other types of contractors in the state. The Board considers the following information before making a disciplinary decision:

  • Nature and severity of the act(s), offense(s), or crime(s) under consideration
  • Actual or potential harm to the public
  • Prior disciplinary record
  • Number and / or variety of current violations
  • Mitigation evidence
  • Rehabilitation evidence
  • Compliance with conditions of sentence and / or court-ordered probation
  • Overall criminal record
  • Time passed since the act(s) or offense(s) occurred
  • Evidence of expungement proceedings

If disciplinary actions are taken against you, there may be a requirement for you to post a disciplinary bond. A disciplinary bond is an additional bond that is required and is dependent upon the violation. It must remain on file for at least two years and the amount is to be determined by the registrar.
