How to obtain your OLCC Server Permit

You must complete both steps to obtain a service permit:

1) Clearly complete (by printing or typing) all the spaces on a service permit application before your first day mixing, selling, or serving alcohol. Then have an authorized person, usually your employer, verify your age and identity and sign the application. Make sure your application is completed and mailed to the OLCC with the $23 fee. Licensees are responsible for immediately transmitting the application by the end of the first work day following your first work shift. Service permit applications are available from your employer and your local OLCC office.

2) Take and pass an alcohol server education class within 45 days from the first day you start mixing, selling, or serving alcohol.

If you pass a class before you complete a service permit application, the OLCC will give you credit for your class if you apply for a service permit within two years of the date you passed the exam.

You should receive your service permit about 14 days after the OLCC receives your completed service permit application, $23.00 fee, and you have passed the server education test (which will be given at the end of this class).

Not every person qualifies for a service permit. Applicants may be denied if they have recent or multiple felony or DUII convictions or if they make a false statement on the application. The form contains a brief description of the conditions that may make someone ineligible for a service permit. Read the application carefully and complete it fully and honestly. If you have questions about whether you are eligible, call the OLCC.

You must be at least 18 years old to apply and receive your permit in Oregon. It is not required that you fill this out before class, but you cannot mix, serve or sell alcohol until it is signed by an authorized signer (your employer, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, or a licensee or their manager) and placed in the mail.
