Before taking the Server Permit Class you will need to visit the state website to fill out your server application. The state website is not mobile friendly; you may need to use a computer. Follow the directions closely, remember you are applying for a "server permit." Once you filled out your application and have paid your state application fee of $20.00, you will have your RLPS# e.g. (21A-MPER-SER-000000) number from the state. This is the number that is required to sign up for the class.
