Applicants unable to submit electronically may submit their permit applications in person by appointment. Scheduled appointments must adhere to Social Distancing protocols. To schedule an appointment, please call (510) 620-6868 during counter hours to speak to a Permit Technician or email your contact phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org, and a permit technician will contact you directly to schedule the appointment. Customers arriving without an appointment will be seen as openings in the appointment schedule allows.
Permit inspections can be scheduled using a touch-tone telephone. Customers should dial the Inspection number (800) 231-6881 and follow a series of prompts by touch tone to schedule or cancel an inspection or to retrieve inspection results. Please view or print instructions to schedule or cancel an inspection. Permit Inspections can also be scheduled using the eTRAKiT inspection portal.
