Occupational Permits

The City of Dothan regulates certain occupations that, by the nature of their work, present a heightened safety risk to the public. These occupations are required to obtain an occupational permit to ensure that those engaged in the regulated occupations meet certain background criteria.

An occupational permit is not a business license. The company must have a City of Dothan business license.

Who needs an Occupational Permit?

  • Door-to-door Solicitors
  • Taxi Drivers
  • Ambulance Attendants/Drivers
  • Gold and Silver Dealers
