Click on a Permit Type below to access its required documents, forms, review stops, inspections and fees. Some permit types labeled as "Quick" are considered an "Over-the-Counter" Permit." Over-the-Counter Permits are those that require minimal or no plans review and are available "while you wait" in limited quantities. In order to expedite processing, please ensure that you have all of the required documentation completed and any applicable product approval or NOA numbers available at the time of application. Quick Permits generally cost $90 plus the State of Florida mandated surcharge of 3% ($4 minimum surcharge).
