What States Require Alcohol Permits? We get asked for this a lot and it is difficult sometimes to find a complete source out there.  And believe me, trying to figure it out in each state takes some time.  The time you likely do not have if you are trying to figure out if you want to take a load and if so, who do you call about permits.

Always remember to confirm that alcohol is not excluded from your insurance.

If you are going to be hauling in NY, MD, KY, and NJ it is best that you plan ahead as these states can take longer to get permission and be costly.
