Types of trade permit
There are two types of trade parking permit available.
- Virtual Trade Permit (VTP) - Register and apply online. This does not require the tradesman to display a paper permit in their vehicle
- Visitor permit scratch cards - Available by post or in person for tradesmen who do not have internet access or would prefer to display a paper permit
How many can be bought?
A trades person can apply to buy:
- VTP - A maximum of three permits per day, for the duration of the application (maximum three months). These can be purchased in bulk and activated as required
- Scratch cards – up to 15 daily scratch cards or three weekly scratch cards per application
Requests for larger quantities of trade permits will only be considered if the contract of work runs for more than three months and must be made in writing together with evidence of the duration of the works.
