Probably. Each city and county has its own requirements. You will probably at least need a Right-of-Way permit and in some cities you may also be required to have a building permit. Check with your local authority..

Unfortunately, the construction industry is plagued with scam artists and driveway paving scams are especially common in our area. You can avoid being another victim by following some practical guidelines. 1) Be weary of someone selling door-to-door. A sure sign of a scam is when a so-called contractor comes to your door claiming to have leftover asphalt after paving another driveway. They will offer you a supposed great deal that is only good today. A reputable contractor will know, with great accuracy, how much paving material is needed to complete a project. Rarely will they have leftover material. Moreover, if the great deal you are offered today is not available tomorrow or next week, it is probably a scam. 2) Never hire someone on the spot. Ask for references and check them! Get a copy of the contractor’s license and certificate of insurance before allowing them on your property. 3) Watch out for unmarked trucks or out-of-area phone numbers. A little research will reveal that they have no permanent address and the phone number is often an answering machine. Reputable contractors are proud to display their name on their vehicles. 4) Insist on a written contract and avoid cash deals. A reputable contractor will accept checks or credit cards and will not require cash-only terms. 5) Avoid a deal that seems too good to be true. If the quoted price seems very low, chances are the quality of work will also be quite low. If you have any doubts, get a second opinion from a locally advertised paving contractor.

Before you employ a paving contractor to install your asphalt driveway or parking lot, it is important that you know what you can expect from the product.  Asphalt is a mixture of various grades of sand and rock (aggregate) and a tar-like substance (asphalt cement) which are heated and blended in an asphalt plant according to a scientifically engineered mix design.

Asphalt is not poured as concrete is, but rather laid with an asphalt paver and compacted with rollers. The result is a continuous smooth riding surface with no expansion joints. It is important that you know that In the process of laying asphalt, some raking must be done to assure a uniform thickness. This raking is usually performed at joints or seams and in areas where the paver cannot access easily. This raking causes some of the larger aggregate to come to the surface. You can always expect that there will be some variations of texture in your completed pavement.

The curing process is also quite different than concrete.  Asphalt cures over a period of months and even years, depending on sun exposure and other factors in the environment.  Asphalt pavement will remain soft during this time and is susceptible to wheel-rashing and other scarring of the surface. Once the asphalt cures, this surface scarring becomes unnoticeable.  Asphalt pavement typically lasts between 10 and 15 years and after its useful life it can be overlaid with a fresh layer of asphalt.
