Using E-Permitting for vehicle dealers


The E-Permitting system automates the dealer temporary permit process by allowing Washington-licensed vehicle dealers to issue, revoke, reprint, and extend permits electronically. The system also allows dealers to view the following reports online:

  • Monthly statistics
  • E-permit log
  • Salesperson transactions
  • Reprinted E-Permits
  • Paper permit log


How to purchase E-Permits

You may purchase electronic vehicle dealer temporary permits, or E-Permits, through your vehicle and vessel licensing and titling agent or subagent for the same $15 fee as paper permits. Instead of printed forms, you’ll get a receipt that shows the E-Permit numbers assigned to your dealership. The E-Permitting system will use these numbers when you issue E-Permits.

How to request a refund

If your dealership has gone out of business, you may request a refund for your remaining E-Permits. To request an E-Permit refund, see Fee refunds for instructions and the form:

  • Mark the “Other“ box and fill in the reason you need a refund.
  • Include a print-out of the E-Permitting home page screen that contains your dealer number and location code, user name, date/time, and number of E-Permits available. If you no longer have access to the E-Permitting system, please tell us on the refund application.
  • Mail or fax the completed, signed refund application and print-out of the E-permitting home page to the location on the application.
