The Sub-660 Credit Score Bond for construction contractors is required by the State to protect against non-payment of fines and costs, pursuant to Rule 61G4-15.006 of the Florida Administrative Code. The bond holder guarantees they will follow all laws and regulations set forth by the CILB, including making all necessary payments to the State of Florida, and will keep truthful and accurate records, books, and reports.
The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation’s (DBPR) Construction Industry Licensing Board (CILB) will ask required contractors for the bond after several other requirements for licensure have been met and before the license is approved. As mentioned before, the Florida Financial Responsibility and Stability Bond is only required to be posted by applicants with a sub-660 FICO score. Applicants are granted licenses to conduct business under Florida Statutes, Chapter 455. Chapter 489 of the Statutes created the CILB and its authority – as such, the Obligee on the bond lists the Florida Construction Industry Licensing Board.
In short, yes – these bonds are continued in full force until canceled by the surety or until the licensed contractor can prove to the Board that their FICO score is equal to or greater than 660.

It is important to note that in Florida, there are two types of licensure: registration and certification. If you have a registered license, you may only practice contracting in that specific county or city (or with any adjoining locales that will accept that registration). If you have a certified license, obtained by completing the Florida Contractor’s Examination, you may work throughout the state.
