The State of Vermont does not have reciprocal licensing agreements with other states for General Contractors. This is because licensing is handled on the local-level, rather than the state-level in Vermont. Requirements and ordinances are put in place by the local planning or building department.
Out-of-state contractors who want to work on construction projects in Vermont must check the laws and ordinances of the city, county or town in which they plan to work. Most cities require contractors to
submit plans and obtain the proper building or zoning permits for their projects.
*Contractors should always notify the local planning or building department if they hold a license in another state.
