To obtain your license, you will need to meet certain requirements. The state of Wyoming has a unique set of rules and regulations that apply to every applicant. Allow us to help guide you through the process.

Why You Need

A License

Licensure laws are in place to protect everyone. They ensure higher industry standards that prevent fraudulent and under-qualified contractors from taking advantage of unsuspecting clients. Licensure laws also benefit contractors in terms of compensation and money owed.
Wyoming will also require you to have a business license, the purpose of which is to protect people from shady contractors. However, a business license will also protect contractors because it allows them to seek compensation through liens rights for any unpaid work. The industry in general benefits from higher standards of professionalism and performance.

You will also need to obtain business insurance for protection from any major liability issues. Your insurance provider will cover you when any kind of unpredictable event occurs, such as accidents, injuries, or theft.

Contact Your Local County Or

Municipal Governments

Certain states (such as Wyoming) have several local jurisdictions that oversee the licensing process. This means that the requirements will vary according to where you live within teh state. Wyoming itself doesn’t regulate the licensing process (except for electricians), so you will need to contact your local county or city officials to learn more about applying for licensure.

Here are some of the main differences you will encounter when it comes to licensing requirements:

  • Fees for new applications and renewals
  • Experience
  • Classifications of licensure



No matter where you live in Wyoming, the licensing process is mostly the same. Every local jurisdiction has similar general requirements, and they include:

  • Business Registration – Before you apply for licensure, you will need to determine your business structure. Some examples include sole proprietorships, LLCs and corporations. Your local jurisdiction may also require you to produce certain documents such as Certificates of Good Standing.
  • Experience – Many local jurisdictions in Wyoming will require you to achieve a minimum threshold of work experience. The type of license you apply for will also determine the amount of experience you need. For example, a journeyman license will require less experience than a master contractor license.
  • Take and pass your licensing exam – This is where your previous and training should come in handy. The test you take will also depend on your specialty (concrete repair and installation).
  • General liability insurance – Your coverage minimums will vary according to the type of work you plan on performing. Your insurance policy will cover you when property damage or personal injuries occur.
  • Workers’ compensation insurance – If you plan on employing anyone, then you will need to have workers’ compensation insurance. However, sole proprietorships are usually exempt from this rule.
  • Application and submission fee – Once you finish filling out your application, you will need to submit it to your local government along with all relevant documentation and materials. You will also need to pay a submission fee, the amount of which will vary according to where you live in Wyoming.
