  • Pennsylvania Auto Mechanic and Body Shop Licenses and Permits

    From a licensing standpoint, Pennsylvania is as moderated and even-keeled as its founders. Although the Commonwealth regulates a number of industries, it doesn't go as far as many states. Even better, it keeps its forms and processes relatively simple and clear. Businesses in what was once known as America's Breadbasket won't find their hands tied when trying to establish themselves.

    In Pennsylvania, as the name suggests, auto repair businesses fix cars, trucks and other motorized vehicles. Although a few states such as Texas, have no special licensing requirements to work on cars, most states and some cities and counties require auto mechanics and their businesses to be duly licensed. In California, an auto mechanic may need a professional license, state license to run a repair shop, county auto repair permit, county HAZMAT permits and a city business license. Regulations vary from state to state. Body shops repair, renovate and enhance automobile frames and chassis. Frequently, they also paint vehicles. Because of the many chemicals and solvents used in this work, some states and counties require body shops to hold HAZMAT permits. Additionally, state, county and city auto repair and body shop licenses are often required.
