On Friday, August 26, the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) announced a special ruling that would allow for third-party delivery services of alcoholic beverages to customers. The special ruling authorizes a Third-Party Delivery Permit, which is the functional equivalent of a transportation license, would allow the permit holders to enter into agreements with restaurants, bars, and liquor stores to make deliveries using their own personal vehicles. Permit carriers would not be allowed to leave any alcohol delivery unattended or deliver to individuals who are underage or intoxicated. They are also forbidden to deliver to college campuses. The new third-party delivery service permit will be issued by the ABC and become available on October 1, 2022, at an annual fee of $2,000.
