Painting Licence South Australia

Although there is no separate painting licence in South Australia, any person wishing to perform painting or decorating work, must have a building work contractors licence. The Consumer and Business Services (CBS) regulates this licence.


To apply for the building work contractors licence with a painting and decorating specialisation, you must have the applicable nationally recognised qualification, which is CPC30620 Certificate III in Painting and Decorating.

How to Apply

The CBS website contains the application form as well as checklists and information about the applicable fees.
Applications, along with the fees and supporting documents may be lodged at the CBS Customer Service Centre in 91 Grenfell St, Adelaide.
