Delays processing postal permit applications
We can give you temporary cover to park in your scheme area if your application is received and is correct.
To arrange cover wait for 5 working days after you’ve applied and then call 0117 922 2600.
This doesn’t affect online orders which will be processed the next working day.
If you're renewing your permit your expired permit will remain valid for 6 weeks after the printed expiry date.
We’re sorry for any inconvenience.
If your car isn’t registered at the address you need a permit for, or you have a leased or company vehicle you need to apply using a paper form.
Getting residents' permits
If you've applied online for residents' or visitors' permits before, you'll need to sign in to your Bristol Account for more permits.
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.
Other ways to order
You can download and return a paper form. You should only use this form if you're unable to apply through your account or by using the 'Get parking permits' online form above.
You can upload a digital copy of the paper form to return it to us rather than post it.
