Change the details on your paper permit (pdf 97kb opens in new window)

and return your application to us with your current permit and one proof of eligibility as listed on the application form.

Change vehicle - temporarily

If your vehicle is off the road because of an accident/major repair or if it has been stolen, we can issue you a 14-day temporary permit for a shared, borrowed or leased vehicle.

You can only get one of these temporary permits by visiting a customer service centre. If you are still in possession of your original permit you must take it, along with a letter from the garage or insurance company to confirm the damage, major repair or theft. 

Please note: you must display both the temporary permit and your normal permit (unless it was stolen with your vehicle) in the temporary vehicle.

Can I get a new paper permit if it has been lost or stolen?

If your paper parking permit is lost or stolen you should report it to the police who will issue you with a crime/lost property reference number. This number will enable you to get a replacement permit for free.
