Nevada Contractor License Bond

What is a Nevada contractor license bond?

A Nevada contractor license bond is required of any contractor license issued within the state. Like all surety bonds, it helps protect owners, suppliers, employees, and consumers if a contractor doesn't fulfill all aspects of their contract.

How much do contractor license bonds in Nevada cost?

The annual cost of a Nevada contractor license bond starts at $100 for bonds with liability limits less than $5,000. Bonds with liability limits over $25,000 require a credit check, which may affect the final cost. Bond amounts can vary from $1,000 to $500,000, and the premium for this type of license bond is determined by the state.

The Nevada State Contractors Board determines the bond amount based on:

  • The type of license being applied for
  • The liability limit
  • The financial status, past contractor experience, and character of the applicant
