Virginia ABC Licensing (VAL) System

The VAL system provides licensees the ability to manage their account and profile, including adding authorized users (employees, delegates, attorneys, licensing services, etc.).

VAL also provides complete online access to business transactions with Virginia ABC, including:

  • Licenses and Permits—apply, renew, modify, surrender, etc.
  • Financial Transactions—payment of all fees, civil fines or penalties, etc.
  • Hearings and Appeals—reporting and correspondence
  • Training Records—officially record responsibility training such as RSVP and MART.
For the optimal experience when using the VAL system, we recommend Google Chrome. Microsoft Edge is also supported. Please know that the VAL system is not compatible with Safari or mobile devices. If you have questions, please contact Virginia ABC's Customer Service Center at (804) 213-4513 or email [email protected].
