The State of Missouri does not hold reciprocal licensing agreements with other states for General Contractors. This is because General Contractors are licensed at the local-level rather than the state-level in Missouri.
Out-of-state contractors who want to work on construction projects in the State of Missouri must check the local laws of the city, county or municipality where they plan to work to determine what is required. Most cities in Missouri require General Contractors to hold a license and the proper permits for their projects. Some cities also require contractors to pass a qualifying exam.
*General Contractors should always notify the local licensing board if they hold a license in another state.
