Can I get a permit for my company van or commercial vehicle?
Yes. We can issue vans and commercial vehicles with a permit if you own the vehicle or this is the only vehicle at the property.
If the vehicle is needed for regular emergency call-outs outside of normal working hours, it may qualify for a permit. You will need a letter from your line manager confirming the nature of these call outs and the vehicle make, model and registration number. You will need to provide three months of time-sheets showing the date, time, address and the reason the vehicle has been called out in an emergency.
Only vehicles with a gross weight less than 3,501kg can qualify for a permit, even if the vehicle is registered to you at your address

Can I get a permit for a lease/company car or taxi/private hire?
Yes. You can get a permit for a lease vehicle, company car or taxi/private hire. You will need to provide a copy of the lease, or a letter from the company on headed paper showing:
- the driver's name
- vehicle registration number
- lease period (for lease vehicles and taxis/private hires)
You will also need to provide proof of your address.
Apply online and upload the lease agreement or company letter as proof of vehicle. Individual lease agreements for finance purposes will not be accepted.
Can I get a permit for a courtesy car?
Yes. If you have a courtesy car from a garage because of an accident or repair, please call us on 023 9268 8310. We can change the permit details and give you a temporary permit.
You will need to e-mail a copy of the hire agreement to email@example.com - there is no charge for this. When your original vehicle has been repaired, you will need to call us so we change the details back.
If your car is written off and you replace the vehicle, the process is the same as changing your vehicle. This will cost £10.
Can a foreign registered vehicle have a resident permit?
No. The vehicle must be re-registered in this country first, and issued with a new registration number and document by the DVLA. This will confirm it is registered to you at an address within the zone.
Can I have more than one registration number on a permit?
If you have access to more than one vehicle please contact us on 023 9268 8310 for more details. An additional charge will apply.
