Current Operations


As the Nevada State Contractors Board adheres to preventative measures in response to COVID-19 by temporarily restricting access to its public meeting spaces, such as office lobby areas, public meeting rooms, etc., it wants the industry and public to know it is still operating in an effort to continue providing essential services at this time.

The Board recognizes these are uncertain times, and extends its appreciation to all customers for their understanding and patience as we work as quickly as possible to process documents and respond to inquiries within limited resources available. Please note, delays in response and processing times may be experienced with regard to the services being offered.

In an effort to keep the industry informed of services available, please refer to the reference guides below based on the subject matter of your need. Any inquiries that are not addressed can be sent via e-mail to CustomerService@nscb.state.nv.us or can be directed by phone to either of the Board’s offices.

SUBMITTING DOCUMENTS: Documents can be submitted to either office where they will be processed and responded to based on resources available.

HARD COPY: Documents can be placed in hard copy form in the designated and secure “Drop Box” outside each office main entrance between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Drop Box is monitored regularly throughout the day to retrieve documents. Only check payments should be included.

NEW LICENSE APPLICATIONS: New license applications may continue to be submitted to the Board; however, applications may not be processed until normal operating hours are resumed. PSI testing facilities as well as many fingerprint locations are currently closed impacting applicants’ abilities to meet these requirements. Applicants who are able to do so are encouraged to withhold submitting completed applications for a new license until the Board resumes normal operating hours.

If you have received a contingent approval notice regarding your application, please provide us with the requested information or documentation.

If your application is pending, we are making efforts to respond to your questions and concerns. With limited staff availability, these responses may be delayed.

Is my business considered “essential” under the Governor’s order?

Is NSCB extending deadlines or waiving fees?

  • The Board will be extending deadlines to comply with impacted exam or other application requirements as a result of the Board’s temporary office limitations. Information will be communicated to affected customers once a new deadline has been determined.
  • All applicable fees remain in effect; however, the Board is temporarily suspending penalties associated with late renewal for licenses expiring after March 31, 2020.
