  • Washington Body Shop Licenses and Permits

    Washington State is home to forests, mountains, rivers, lakes, volcanoes, beaches and bays. So, it's not surprising that a state with such natural beauty works hard to find a balance between safeguarding the environment, protecting consumers and maintaining a thriving business community. Like most western states, Washington has a fair amount of state and city level licenses. However, it maintains fewer than neighboring Oregon or giant California below that.

    In Washington, 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.
