A building permit must be issued to a licensed City of Aurora contractor (except for homeowners doing work on their home). To obtain a licensed contractor qualified to work in the city of Aurora, an active list of licensed contractors is available.
To work in the city of Aurora as a contractor, you will need to obtain the appropriate license for the type of work you will be doing and all testing is given through International Code Council (ICC).
So what type of contractor and supervisor license do you need to work in the city of Aurora?
To help you through this process, here are some of the important steps to take:
1. Application for Contractor or Supervisor license must be completed for new and renewed licenses.
2. License Fees and Required Competency Information will help you know what types of licenses we offer, the required fees for the type of license you want and the requirements to obtain that license.
3. A Notarized Affidavit must be completed and is required by law. Before the city may provide certain public benefits, it must verify that the applicant is lawfully present in the United States as required by House Bill 06-1023.
4. The Construction Supervisor handout details the expectations of a construction supervisor.
Once your license has been issued to you or your company, it will be added to our Online Contractor Look-up Tool, which reflects an active list of qualified licensed contractors within the city of Aurora.
ALL Contractor and Supervisor license renewals notices are sent by email. To receive renewal notices, make sure the email address the Building Division has on file is current and your email account is set to accept emails from AmandaSystem@auroragov.org. Please note that emails from this address are mass email correspondence and are automated, not an email address to correspond to. Renewing a contractor license or supervisor license can be done by mail, coming into the Permit Center or on our website by clicking "Renew Prof. License".
