Apply for a licence


Whatever licence you apply for, you need to meet a few requirements. We want to know about your qualifications, experience and how you run your business. If you don’t have a formal qualification, you can get your skills recognised and we provide full details about where you can go to either complete a course or begin the process to get recognition.

View the list of licence classes and once you know the licence you want, get started by downloading an application form. What you pay is based on your business revenue and the grade of licence. You can calculate the amount on our Licence fees page.

There are a few more steps to complete if you live overseas but want to work in Queensland as a builder or contractor, as you may need to get your international qualification recognised. If you are an interstate licensee, we can usually give you an equivalent licence – it is just a matter of completing a short form. See Moving from interstate or overseas to get all the information.
