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.
You don't have to be a High Life man or woman to live in Milwaukee, but it helps. Milwaukee was once famous for being home to more than four of the nation's major brewing companies and today still claims the Miller Brewing Company as a favorite son. Of course, there's more to Milwaukee than beer. The city has a substantial manufacturing sector as well as energy, finance and food processing. Milwaukee entrepreneurs can usually need several local and state licenses and permits to operate. The city uses regulation to monitor businesses for fair dealings, proper zoning, safety and sanitation.
