Reporting Unlicensed Activity

How to report unlicensed activity to the DBPR

  • The state of Florida requires a license; you can confirm licenses at www.MyFloridaLicense.com.
  • Non-licensed contractors performing work which requires a license can be reported to the Department of Business and Professional Regulation

Call the DBPR’s toll-free hotline 866-532-1440 or e-mail ULA@dbpr.state.fl.us (report is forwarded to local office / investigator). A list of regulation offices can be found at www.myfloridalicense.com/dbpr/reg/contact.html
