Tips for Completing the Permit Application
  • CTC only accepts typed (not hand written) 41-4 forms as of July 1, 2023.
  • You may stop and start the permit application at any time. Log into your CDTC Account to view applications and continue. (If you do not have a CDTC account, you will be prompted to create one if you are eligible for the stipend.)
  • Select “Save & Continue” if any changes are made to a tab.
  • On the “Review/Summary” tab, you must download all required documents before you submit the application electronically.
    • All documents must be downloaded again if the Review/Summary tab is closed before submitting. This ensures any changes are updated in the application documents.
  • Once a tab has been completed, you may select the tab at the top to edit or make changes to previous sections. The back button can also be used to navigate.
  • Do not use Internet Explorer to complete the application. Recommended browsers are: Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
Benefits of the online permit application

  • Email updates as the application is being processed
  • Most permit application documents are pre-printed with applicant information, reducing errors
  • Only the documents required for your permit type and level will print
