Tennessee Server Permit   $34.95    

This course satisfies the TABC Training requirements for obtaining a TABC 5-Year Server Permit.

An RLPS# is required before purchasing. IT MUST BE YOUR VALID RLPS# or we cannot submit your score. Don’t know what this is or need to know how to get it? Click here.

In order to receive a Server Permit from the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission you:

  • Must be 18 years of age
  • Have a valid social security number
  • Cannot have been convicted of a felony in the previous 4 years of any crime related to the sale of alcohol, schedule 1 or 2 controlled substances, embezzlement, or any sex related crime in the previous 8 years.
  • Cannot have had Server Permit or license revoked in the previous 5 years


Although you will receive a certificate for successful completion of this course, it IS NOT your TABC 5-Year Server Permit. The TABC will email you 2-4 business days after your training results are submitted, provided you used a valid RLPS# and your application has been approved by the TABC.
