Overview & Benefits
The right resources and exam prep services
Are you looking to become a licensed contractor in the great state of Delaware? You've come to the right place. At the Contractor Training Center, we help hopeful contractors fill out and submit their applications, pass the proper exams, and complete everything needed to become a fully legal and licensed contractor, ready to operate in Delaware.
Unlike many states, Delaware makes it easy to register and apply for your license within the same registration packet. Before you do that, you'll need to get your Federal Employer Identification Number and additional tax information. You'll also need to register your business entity with the state.
Generally speaking, most contracting licenses that Delaware grants are either resident or non-resident licenses. However, you may be looking to go into a specialty trade field, such as plumbing, electric, HVAC, or water drilling. In such cases, additional exams or requirements may be necessary.
The Benefits of Having a Contractor's License in Delaware
Gives You Credibility
A state contractor's license can show a potential client that you have done your due diligence. For clients, the license makes them far more likely to trust you. Gaining this trust is a central component of establishing solid client relationships that will last for years to come. A state license makes an excellent first impression and gives you the chance to continue making a good impression with your work.
Gives You a Higher Earning Potential
Do you want to earn more in your role as a contractor? When you have a license that can back you up, you can increase your rates. By hiring someone licensed with the state, there's far less risk and much more security for the clients. Many consumers will only hire a licensed individual, so you are also increasing the number of jobs you are likely to get.
