• 2024 California Contractors License Law & Reference Book

    Significant changes made to streamline book
    Sacramento, CA – The 2024 edition of the Contractors State License Board (CSLB) California Contractors License Law & Reference Book (Law Book) is now available. CSLB is pleased to introduce a streamlined law book that includes essential information for the California construction industry.

    The Law Book can be purchased directly from the publisher, or the online PDF version can be viewed or downloaded at no cost on the CSLB website.

    CSLB has reviewed and made noteworthy changes to the Law Book, cutting the book to half its previous size.

    Key changes include removal of:
    • Chapter 1 Becoming a Licensed Contractor: This information is available in the Get Licensed to Build guide on CSLB’s website.
    • Chapter 2 Your Existing License: Maintaining and Changing It: This information is available on the Maintain and Change Your License page on CSLB’s website.
    • Chapter 3 Access to License Information: This information is available on different parts of CSLB’s website, depending on what licensee information you’re looking to access.
    • Chapter 7 Safety and Health in Construction: This information is available on Cal/OSHA’s website, which also links to the Cal/OSHA construction, electrical, and general industry safety orders.
    As a result, the chapters were renumbered to reflect the changes.

    Also, sections of law from California state codes that are not from the Business and Professions Code, which were included in prior year editions, were removed and can be found at www.leginfo.legislature.ca.gov.

    The Law Book can only be purchased directly from publisher LexisNexis online or by calling (877) 394-8826. The price is $54.00 plus tax, shipping, and handling. The Law Book is available as a PDF on the CSLB website and can be downloaded for free.
