Customer Self Service (CSS)
Before applying for a permit/license online, you first need to have an account registered with the City of Cedar Rapids Customer Self-Service (CSS) portal. If you’ve already created a CSS account for other City licenses or permits, you can skip this guide and login to your existing account.
CSS registration is a one-time process. Once you have created your CSS account, you can apply for multiple permits/licenses under that same account. For the best experience through this process, we recommend using Google Chrome or Firefox as your web browser.
