Trades Contractor License Renewal - Your license expires December 31, 2021

Forms for renewals will be mailed out to license and certificate holders who have either an ‘active’ or ‘inactive’ status. Those with an ‘expired’ or ‘void’ status will not receive a renewal reminder.

With more than 3,000 trade certificates expiring on December 31, 2021, MABCD will hold walk-in hours for renewal of trade certificates. These will be on Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. – 4:45 p.m., starting on September 1.


Because of continued health concerns, MABCD will need to prevent overcrowding of the reception area and lobby.
The lobby limit is eight (8) visitors. Please do not bring guests with you.
A waiting list will be created to hold your place in line when the lobby reaches capacity.
You will be called or texted when a seat becomes available in the lobby. You will not lose your place in line, but your seat will only be held for five (5) minutes.

Please remember, you can use our appointment system in order to make your time more efficient.
