    There are separate licenses for Suffolk County and Nassau County, you have to get an application from Consumer affairs and take a test. Some villages also require separate licenses/permits. As far as insurance we are insured through the Farm Bureau. They are a very strict company that will want proof of prior insurance and a claims report. You best bet would probably be calling around and getting quotes. :)

    Long story!! Another case of designer MIA. Nothing like designing a half functional site, and not finishing it. I'm actually in the process of getting it fixed or just getting a new one designed.

    When i received my license they said you need 5 years experience with a LCO in order to receive a license but no test. Is the test something new you can take in place of having experience???


    I got insurance through an allstate agent 1 million coverage no theft or anything for under $900 a year.. They where half the price of every place i visited
