Parking and permits

Special control parking permits

Cost of special control parking permits

Special control parking permits are valid for 3 or 12 months. The cost of your permit depends on how long you want the permit for.

There are also 3 different rates available depending on the level of emissions that your vehicle produces.

Once you have entered your vehicle registration into the Permit Portal, the system will automatically identify if your vehicle is entitled to a discount.

Discounted rate

You may be eligible for a discount dependent on your vehicle type; low emission parking discounts are available for electric/LPG powered cars and cars with emissions up to 120g/km2 (vehicle tax bands A-C).

If you want to check whether you qualify for the discounted rate before applying, you can find vehicle tax information on a new or used car online from the Vehicle Certification Agency.

Standard rate

You'll be charged the standard rate for any vehicles which don't qualify for the discounted rate.

Premium rate

You'll be charged the premium rate for your household permit if the emissions are over 185g/Km2 (vehicle tax bands J to M), or your vehicle is longer than 5 metres in length.

Additional permit rates

The discounted or premium rates only apply to the initial permit at an address, and don't apply to additional permits. Rates for additional permits are fixed, and determined by the number of additional permits required.
