Online Submission of INDOT Permit Applications

INDOT Permits is paperless! All permit applicants are now required to use INDOT’s Electronic Permitting System (EPS) when seeking a permit and making an electronic payment. INDOT is working to modernize and increase productivity to better improve our service offerings, and EPS makes it easy to apply for and update a permit. Utilizing INDOT’s online system allows customers to track and manage their permits, enable direct email access to track communications, and provides a repository for all documents relevant to the permit. Once registered to use EPS, the applicant can just follow the instruction prompts for submitting the application package. All permit applications must be submitted electronically, however, certain exceptions will be allowed by law.
