Do I have to have a license to operate a shop? If so, how do I obtain a license?

Tim Smith -

Yes, if you provide a service to the public, you must be a licensed shop.

To obtain a license, visit the website and complete the shop application and submit to the board by mail with the appropriate fee.

Based on the type of shop you desire to open, the instructions will tell you specifically what you must have before the inspection. Upon receipt of your application in the board office, a field inspector will contact you to set up an inspection.
