Applying for a parking permit
Do you live in an area where you have to pay to park your car or other vehicle? You can apply to the municipality for a residents’ parking permit (parkeervergunning voor bewoners). If you have a residents' parking permit, you do not have to pay for parking at the parking meter or via a parking app.
A parking permit is registered to a specified vehicle registration number. If you have more than 1 car or other vehicle, you must apply for a separate parking permit for each vehicle.
Contact your municipality to apply for a parking permit.

A parking permit is for residents or businesses living or based in a regulated area. There are conditions you must meet. If you do not qualify for a parking permit, a parking subscription in one of our car parks may be a solution.

Are you a contractor? And are you working on a job or project in an area with paid parking? Then you can apply for a temporary parking permit (TPO) for contractors (with a Chamber of Commerce number) in the digital counter. This allows you to park in paid parking spaces in the parking sector of your job. You can add up to 10 license plates to one parking permit. But only one license plate can be activated.
Number of license plates
The parking permit is by license plate. You will not receive a paper vignette. You can add a maximum of 10 license plates (businesses) and 3 license plates (residents) to one parking permit. Only one license plate can be activated. Activating a license plate means that you may use the parking permit with this vehicle.
To apply for a parking permit, you must meet the following conditions:
- Your vehicle's registration certificate is in your name. Or you are using a lease car.
- You live in the Netherlands and are registered in the municipality where you want to apply for the parking permit.
- Are you not registered in the municipality? Then you must prove that you live and work in that municipality.
- Your vehicle must meet the environmental requirements.
You can apply for a parking permit online via the digital counter. Log in with your DigiD.
Entrepreneurs first request a digital login code, which they can use to log in at the digital counter.

Extend your parking product
Extend your parking product on time. If you do not renew on time, your parking product will expire and be terminated. If you let your parking product expire/terminate, you can reapply for a parking product. Your application will be re-evaluated. If the neighbourhood you live in has a waiting list, you will be placed on it.
Are you moving house?
A parking permit is not transferable and cannot be taken to a new address. You are no longer entitled to the current parking permit from the day you are registered at your new address. The moment you are registered at the new address, you can apply for a new parking permit via the digital counter.
Are you not yet registered at your new address, but would you like to make use of the visitors' scheme while you are renovating/moving? You can send an e-mail to email@example.com with your move confirmation starting one month before the move date.
