Virginia contractor licensing

Sunday, April 13th, 2014

Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Registration - DPORThe Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation Board for Contractors “licenses businesses engaged in the construction, removal, repair, or improvement of facilities on property owned by others.”

The license has two parts: the class and the classification/speciality. The class of license – A, B, or C – determines the maximum monetary value of a project that can be performed. The classification/specialty determines the type(s) of work the contractor is licensed to perform.

Through the Virginia DPOR website license lookup at, you can view any contractor’s license, including class, specialties, and any open and/or closed complaints. This is a useful tool for researching not just contractors, but any service provider engaging in a state-licensed occupation.
