Applying for a licence in the portal

You can apply for a building practitioner’s licence via the LBP portal. To do this, you will first need to register as a new user, and then apply for a new licence class.

If you have applied for a licence in the past (even if you do not have a current licence), you do not need to register as a new user. You would instead need to request access to the portal. For instructions on how to do this, please visit:

  1. Review our factsheets to make sure you understand the competencies you need to meet.
  2. Decide which application pathway is right for you.
  3. Make sure you have an active RealMe, Microsoft, or Google account and know your username and password. You will need to use this to access the LBP portal.
