Easy 4 Step Process


Step 1

Look Up Your Course Provider

To upgrade your Class 13 MAST Permit to a Class 12 MAST Permit, you must contact the course provider that issued your original permit. Use the look-up tool below to see which provider issued your original permit.


Step 2

Verify Your Information

Please fill out the form below to verify which course provider issued your original Class 13 MAST Permit. If it was Craft Serving, we will need to collect additional information to issue your MAST Permit upgrade.

Step 3

Pay For Your Permit

We do our best to make getting a MAST Permit an affordable process. That said, there are real costs when it comes to issuing MAST Permits. To help offset these costs, we charge $10.00 for all MAST Permit upgrades.


Step 4

Check Your Mailbox

After receiving and verifying all of your information, we will process your upgrade request. Please allow up to 14 days to receive your permit in the mail.

Why Should I Upgrade My MAST Permit?

MAST Permits are initially issued based on age. Individuals 18-20 receive a Class 13 MAST Permit, while individuals 21 or older receive a Class 12 MAST Permit.

A Class 13 permit allows you to work in the food and beverage industry, but not primarily as an alcohol server or bartender.

Once you turn 21, your Class 13 permit can be upgraded to a Class 12, enabling you to legally perform more duties.

You should seek to upgrade your permit if you start performing the duties of a Class 12 permit holder. You may perform the duties of a Class 12 permit holder for no more than 30 days. After this grace period, you are required to have obtained a Class 12 permit.

Class 13 Permits vs. Class 12 Permits

The major difference between Class 13 permit holders and Class 12 permit holders is age and the functions they are allowed to perform.


Class 13 Server Permit

Class 13 permit (18 to 20 years of age). This permit allows you to:

  • Take alcohol orders
  • Deliver alcoholic beverages
  • Pour alcohol into a customer’s glass at the customer’s table
  • Sell alcohol
  • You are eligible to upgrade to a Class 12 permit once you turn 21


Class 12 Mixologist Permit

Class 12 permit (21 and over). This permit allows you to:

  • Perform all the duties included in the Class 13 permit
  • Mix drinks
  • Draw alcohol from a tap
  • Conduct alcohol tastings
  • Manage the establishment

Minor permittees may temporarily enter areas prohibited to minors to clean up, seat patrons, deliver a message, order and pick up drinks for service in non-prohibited areas, to set and clear tables and to serve food. They may not take food/alcohol orders or serve alcohol in areas prohibited to minors.

5 Quick Facts


  • The provider that issued your original permit must issue your upgrade.
  • Craft Serving processes upgraded permits within 14 days.
  • Your upgraded permit will have the same expiration date as your original permit.
  • Your upgraded permit will have the same permit number as your original permit.
  • After you receive your permit, you must sign and carry it anytime you serve alcohol.




If your existing MAST Permit is nearing expiration, we recommend you renew it rather than upgrade it. Renewing your MAST Permit involves retaking a MAST Class and the final exam, but your new permit will be valid for another five, full years! Plus, the cost to renew is only slightly more than the cost to upgrade.
