1. Create a new user account on MyGovernmentOnline.

While it may take a few minutes to initially set up an account in the system, renewing or repurchasing a permit will be easier than before. Beginning Jan. 11, 2021, please visit www.mygovernmentonline.org to set up an account to apply for your permit. If you need help with setting up your account, please go to www.mygovernmentonline.org/#contactus or call the My GovernmentOnline Helpdesk at 866-957-3764 during normal business hours, 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. (EST)


After business hours you may leave a voicemail that will be answered the next day.  

You can also view our help document below.


2. Apply for a new permit once logged into MyGovernmentOnline.


Please note:  Permits can be paid for with check, charge card or cash.  Customers can pay for their permits online via this website with credit cards or ACH check.  There will be a non-refundable service fee for Charge Card or ACH Payment and will appear as a separate charge on your Charge Card or Bank Statement.
