If you've applied online for residents' or visitors' permits before, you'll need to sign in to your Bristol Account for more permits.

Apply through your account

If you haven't applied online before you'll need:

  • an email address to create your account
  • a debit or credit card to pay
  • vehicle registration certificate V5C (log book) for each vehicle

You must answer all questions unless marked as optional.

Get parking permits

If you don't know which area you live in, enter your postcode and select your address on the My Neighbourhood service or use the map of active areas.

Other ways to order

If you can’t apply through your account or by using the 'Get parking permits' online form above, then you can send us a pdf version of the permit application form.

To do this you must:

Download and complete a pdf version of the permit application form for your resident parking area.

You can return this to us either by:

1: post, we recommend that you use  the Royal Mail signed for service so you can be sure  that we'll get your application and any documents you send us.

Or 

2: upload the completed permit application form to the residents' parking document upload page.
