DPOR + Merit

Making contractor licenses available digitally, for free.


What does this mean for contractors?

Contractors can now keep an official digital version of their Class A, B, or C license with them to be easily accessible on the job site or whenever needed.

Digital licenses work the same way as traditional licenses, making carrying a paper certificate to the job site a thing of the past.

Local permitting offices, inspectors in the field, and end consumers can verify digital licenses contactlessly and in real-time – no paperwork or app required.

DPOR has partnered with merit to make licenses digital and contactless

As legislated in the 2019 Session of the General Assembly,* DPOR has partnered with online credentialing service Merit to drive innovation, digital transformation, and efficiency for all.

*Paragraph D of Item 119 of the 2018-2020 Appropriations Act
