Yes, most carports will need some sort of permit, however, not every construction project requires a building permit. If you are just repainting your home, putting up a fence, repaving your driveway, or changing your kitchen cabinets or appliances, it is not likely that you will need a building permit; these rules change depending on your area though, so make sure you do not need a permit before you begin your project. For something that will be changing the building’s structure, the use of the building, or changes that have the potential of creating unsafe working conditions, you will need a permit.
We have outlined a complete guide to building permits which is a great place to get more detailed information
