Alcohol Server Training

Your server permit is valid for five years. You may renew by taking the ORLA training then going to the OLCC website to take the test, submit your application and pay all applicable fees.

If you take and pass the ASE course, it is good for two years. You can apply for a permit any time within those two years.

If you submit an application to OLCC first, the application is only good for 45 days. You must take and pass the course within those 45 days.

Remember, even if you take and pass the ASE course, you may not sell or serve alcohol without a valid service permit from the OLCC, or a valid temporary permit.

You must renew your service permit every five years. To renew, take the alcohol server training course. Upon completion to go to OLCC’s test portal to take the final exam.  If you’ve taken an Alcohol Server Education course within the past seven (7) years, you are eligible to take the shorter renewal course.
