    If you are advertising plumbing as a contractor you have to put your number on that advertisement.

        I took my test almost 30-years ago but at the time Plumbers, Well Diggers and Electric Sign Contractors were the only trades required to have their names on their trucks. In addition to you name you needed to list your contractor's number in no smaller than 2" numbers. I'm not sure if that is still the requirements or not.

          Many plumbing contractors I know have more work than they can handle so they don't put anything on their trucks other than the DMV registration # on the heavier ones.

            Thanks funny. If you have all the work you need just leave the name and license number off.

            I don't think the requirement was but in the law to ensure you were advertising your services, it's more likely so someone can have the minimum information needed to report you to the State if they feel the need to.

              Almost 30-years ago and I still have it:


              § 7029.5. Display of name, business address and business license number on commercial vehiclesEvery plumbing contractor, electrical sign contractor, and well-drilling contractor licensed under this chapter shall have displayed on each side of each motor vehicle used in his or her business, for which a commercial vehicle registration fee has been paid pursuant to Article 3 (commencing with Section 9400) of Chapter 6 of Division 3 of the Vehicle Code, his or her name, permanent business address, and contractor’s license number, all in letters and numerals not less than 1½ inches high.The identification requirements of this section shall also apply to any drill rig used for the drilling of water wells.Failure to comply with this section constitutes a cause for disciplinary action.

              I was off on the size of the numbers though.

                Makes sense to me Bob.Yet to see any requirements pertaining to putting your name on the truck.Been viewed by us as an option.If we chose to run the name to drum up business,we're required to post our license #.

                  Mark, the NJ statute reads pretty much the same.


                  NJSA
                  CHAPTER 32
                  STATE BOARD OF EXAMINERS

                  N.J.S.A. 45:14C-7.



                  13:32-3.1 Identification of licensed master plumber)

                  or qualified bona fide representative; and

                  3. The name of the owner or lessee of the vehicle and

                    So I wonder why they have not ever inforced it in the 23 years I've been around the trades.Never heard of anyone getting popped for it out here.

                    I have saved the information that you shared with us Mark,thank you.

                      Does anyone know why these three only? Seems like there are plenty more that have the ability to do damage to the community.

                          I wonder the same thing back when I was getting ready for my test. I would imagine they feel those are the three trades which are most likely to hurt adjacent property while working.
