New Mexico

New Mexico has two different types of licenses: GB-2 Residential Contractor and GB-98 Commercial Contractor.

 

The GB-2 Residential Contractor license allows for residential work. The GB-98 Commercial Contractor allows for residential and commercial work. To get the GB-98 Commercial Contractor license, applicants must also pass the GB-2 Residential Contractor exam even if they do not wish to do residential work.

 

In New Mexico, a license is required for any job, regardless of size.


New Mexico GB-2 and GB-98 Contractor

The New Mexico GB-98 license allows the builder to bid on, build, or modify commercial and residential structures. To get the GB-98 license, the applicant must also take the GB-2 trades exam even if they do not wish to do residential work. If you already held the GB-2 license, you do not need to take the GB-2 exam again.

There are three required exams: the GB-98 Commercial trades exam, the GB-2 Residential Trades exam, and the New Mexico Business Law exam.
