To Apply

Current qualified licensees interested in obtaining a delivery permit should complete the in-state delivery permit application. Complete an application for each license to which you would like the permit privilege added.

Additional instructions are included in the application. Make sure to read over page 2 of the application, “In-State Delivery Permit General Information & Requirements,” to understand the responsibilities and requirements of the delivery permit privilege. Only an owner of the business; a partner, if the business is a partnership; a member of a limited liability company; or an officer of a corporation, if the business is a corporation, is authorized to sign the delivery permit application.

Once processed and approved, an updated copy of the license will be sent to the licensee containing the delivery permit privilege.
