Florida State Statute 489.113(c)

"The local government may also deny issuance of, or may suspend, any outstanding building permit where a contractor fails or refuses to provide proof of public liability and property damage insurance coverage as required by s. 489.115(5) and workers' compensation insurance coverage as required by s. 489.114."

Please Note: A verified contractor license is only valid in unincorporated Broward County or in areas where the Go SOLAR Online Permitting System is used to pull a permit. If you are planning to perform work within an incorporated area, please check with the city where you plan to pull the permit.

  2. A copy of your certificate of general liability insurance*

  3. A copy of your certificate of workers' compensation insurance or a waiver stating exeption

  4. A copy of your Florida Driver License
