Registration Renewal: General Contractor



To renew your General Contractor Registration, submit the following documents in person to:

NYC Department of Buildings
Licensing & Exams Unit
280 Broadway, 1st Floor
New York, NY 10007



Required documents include

  • Original typewritten, notarized LIC6 Application
  • Notarized statement, on company letterhead, indicating any changes to the company (i.e. new address) with the following required documents:
    • Telephone bill with company name, address, and business telephone number for business number changes (VOIP services will require a utility bill, bank statement, lease or deed in the business name)
    • Utility Bill (electric, gas, water), bank statement, lease or deed in the business name for address changes
  • If you have changed companies (business name only, same EIN#), you must provide appropriate business documents as listed in the LIC6 application instructions
    NOTE: Company changes with new EIN numbers must reapply
  • Original registration card
  • Photo identification (driver's license, passport, or green card with photo)
  • If there were Safety Registration (LIC7) endorsements added to the General Contractor registration, the renewal fee is $80.00 per endorsement or $130.00 per endorsement for late renewal.

    Note: To avoid a late fee, renewal applications must be submitted 30-60 days before the expiration date that is indicated on your license card. After a year you will have to reapply for the registration.  For more information please see our License Reinstatement guide.

  • Renewal Fee: $240.00; Late Renewal Fee: $50.00
