Proof of vehicle details

Permits issued with a short car parking discount are vehicle specific so we'll need to see a copy of your vehicle registration document (V5 document), to confirm the vehicle details.

If you're not the registered keeper of the vehicle, we'll need to see the V5 document as well as a covering letter from the owner confirming that you have permission to use the vehicle. Examples where this may be the case include:

  • lease cars
  • company cars
  • cars owner by other family members

You can send scanned copies of the V5 document and cover letter (if required) by email, but photographs of documents are not acceptable.

Please note that if you don’t own the vehicle, if a parking fine is issued and not paid, any notification letters will be sent to the registered keeper and not your address.
