In this notice and on the application, the term 223conviction224 includes pleading guilty or nolo contendere (223no contest224) or being convicted by a court of any misdemeanor or felony in this state or elsewhere. As part of the Contractors State License Board (CSLB) application process and as required by law, you must be fingerprinted if you have not been fingerprinted by CSLB before or if your previous fingerprint record was purged by CSLB due to a voided application; disassociated, revoked, or cancelled license or registration; or for some other reason. After an application is accepted by CSLB as complete (also known as 223posted224), the applicant will be sent instructions on the process for obtaining and submitting fingerprints, usually via live scan electronic transmission. Your fingerprints will be compared to the records of the California Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. If you have ever been convicted of a crime, your criminal record information will be reported to CSLB. This includes DUIs and other Vehicle Code violations resulting in a conviction. Even if you pled 223no contest,224 had the conviction set aside, or judgment deferred pursuant to Penal Code sections 1000 or 1203.4 (commonly understood as 223expunged224), the past conviction will still be reported to CSLB and must be disclosed on the application. However, some convictions or charges should NOT be disclosed, including the following: Convictions that were adjudicated in the juvenile court; Convictions under California Health and Safety Code sections 11357 (b), (c), (d), or (e) or section 11360 (b) that are two years old or older; and Charges that were dismissed as the result of successful completion of a deferred entry of judgment program (diversion program) under California Penal Code section 1000.3. If you have ever been convicted of a crime (except in the three circumstances outlined above), you should answer 223Yes224 to the criminal conviction question on the application and provide a detailed explanation of the circumstances resulting in your conviction. To help ensure that you provide the required information, you should complete and submit the Disclosure Statement Regarding Criminal Plea/Conviction form that is available on CSLB222s website on the Forms and Applications page. Applicants with criminal convictions are not automatically denied licensure 226 each application is reviewed individually based on the applicable sections of law. When reviewing criminal convictions, CSLB considers factors such as the nature and severity of the crimes, the amount of time that has passed since the convictions, and any evidence of rehabilitation submitted by the applicant. For rehabilitation evaluation, pursuant to Title 16, California Code of Regulations section 869, CSLB is generally looking for three (3) years to have passed after a misdemeanor conviction and seven (7)years to have passed after a felony conviction, without further violations of law. Thesetimeframes are calculated from the applicant222s date of release from incarceration or from the end ofprobation if no time was served and are subject to reduction or extension based on several factors,including the nature of the applicant222s conviction history as a whole. In addition, any type ofconviction could be considered substantially related to the qualifications or duties of a contractorwhen evaluated in the context of the applicant222s entire conviction record.Failure to accurately report any and all disclosable convictions may be grounds for denial of your application. If your application is denied, you will be notified of the earliest date when you may re-apply, which will vary based upon the facts of each case, from one (1) to five (5) years from the effective date of the denial.
