Official Vendor Permit (Bar Card)

Upon successfully completing our Louisiana Responsible Vendor Program and final exam, you will be able to immediately print your temporary certificate of completion. It will also be emailed to you.

On a weekly basis we will upload LRVP completion records to the Louisiana Alcohol and Tobacco Control.

The ATC no longer mails the responsible vendor cards. Your RV card will be available on the ATC website. Click here to print your card.

(If you have an iPhone or an Android Smartphone, please click here to download the new ATC RV APP)

Your permit will expire in 4 years on the last day of the month you completed your training.

Renewing Your Bar Card

The ATC requires you to take an approved seller server training course every four years to remain Responsible Vendor Program (RVP) certified. There is not a separate re-certification course if you have already been RVP certified, nor is there a way to "test out" of the RVP course.

Louisiana RVP Training Requirements

According to Louisiana law “any employee of a vendor who is authorized to sell or serve alcoholic beverages or tobacco products in the normal course of his or her employment or deals with customers who purchase or consume alcoholic beverages or tobacco products” must take an RV Course and obtain an RV Server Permit within 45 days of their hire date.

RV Program Approval

Training providers must be approved by the ATC. Our SureSell Louisiana Online Course meets all the requirements of the State of Louisiana. You can view the SureSell Louisiana program approval on the Louisiana Alcohol and Tobacco Control website.
