eServices Training Videos

Training videos are now available to help DPS customers understand how ePermits and ePlans (eServices) work.  These videos will guide the user through the steps to successfully apply for permits, upload construction drawings and documents and download approved plans.

To begin using ePermits and ePlans, please send a request for a user account to  All eServices accounts are based on email addresses.  If the applicant account has multiple users, DPS suggests the eServices account be a general one whereby businesses/users control the access.  It is important that the ePermits account and the ePlans account have the same email address.  Remember, this email address will be used to gain access to projects and to communicate with the applicant during the review process.

Each request MUST include the following information:

          Applicant Name

          Business name (if applicable)

          Requested user account email


          Daytime phone number

You may also attend one of our training classes to enhance your understanding of the DPS eServices.  If you have any questions call 311 or 240-777-0311 for more information.
