Florida law affects contractor licenses in Miami-Dade County

Florida law affects contractor licenses in Miami-Dade County

If you’re a contractor working in Miami-Dade County under a specialty license, House Bill 1383 may affect the way you acquire a license in Miami-Dade County.

Previously, HB735, passed by the Florida legislature, would’ve preempted several construction trades from being licensed by Miami-Dade County, effective July 1, 2023. However, HB1383 extends this deadline to July 1, 2024.

To see if your trade is affected by the state law, visit Contractor License Category Preemption and click on the “Affected Licenses” tab. 

On July 1, 2024, your alternative to be licensed may be to apply with Miami-Dade or the State of Florida for a license containing your scope of work.  In the meantime, you may continue to apply for these licenses locally or renew your current license—all which would be valid through June 30, 2024.  Preempted licenses will no longer be offered altogether after that date, but note that you may still need to apply for any required building permits for a particular job, either with RER’s Building Division or with your corresponding local municipality. Please inquire about individual projects by contacting us or by contacting the individual jurisdiction to know of any permits you may need for a job.

Here’s some additional information about the preemption, including frequently asked questions and answers.
