Contractors holding a Virginia Class B license are no longer required to have a Fairfax County HIC license and they are no longer required to file a bond with the Fairfax County License Branch.
Some of the other contractor HIC license requirement changes effective on December 1, 2003, include the elimination of the Fairfax County testing requirements and increasing the required Class C licensed contractor bond amount to $10,000. The annual HIC renewal date will change. Renewal letters will be mailed to the applicable current HIC license holders in the next few weeks.
