License/Permits

You will be prompted to choose whether you are purchasing a 2014 permit or a 2015 permit.  Whichever you choose, it will display only those privileges available for that year.  Because you have to make a choice at the start of the purchase, you will not be able to purchase a 2014 permit and a 2015 permit in the same transaction. You will have to do two separate transactions.  The dual year option will display until April 30, 2015.  After that date, the choice will not be there and only 2015 permits will be available.

You can purchase licenses and permits with a toll-free telephone call, online from your home or office computer, or from one of more than 600 license vendors located around the state. A list of license vendors, organized by county, is available at the link below. We suggest you call the vendor to ensure they are open for business, since some vendors operate seasonally.
