Automotive Repair Business Licenses


  • Licensees may experience delays in receiving licenses and renewal notices: Due to technical difficulties being experienced by the vendor responsible for printing and mailing BAR’s business licenses and business and individual license renewal notices, licensees may experience delays in receiving their licenses and renewal notices. As a reminder, renewal notices are mailed as a courtesy and licensees are responsible to ensure timely renewal. If you have questions relating to the status of your license application, license renewal, or license, please contact BAR’s Licensing Program by email at or by phone at (855) 735-0462.

  • Vehicle safety systems licenses will replace brake and lamp licenses soon pursuant to AB 471 (Low, Chapter 372, Statutes of 2021). Join our email list to receive important implementation announcements in your inbox.
