Existing users

If you are already a registered user login to the MiPermit portal to manage your digital parking permits.

Register for digital permits

To register for digital parking permits, you’ll need your council tax or business rates account number, your postcode and your property number.

You can only register for digital visitors' parking permits if you are a resident of that parking permit area. You don't need to own a vehicle to apply for visitors’ parking permits.

Call MiPermit on 0345 520 7007 if you have problems registering.

Get residents’ parking permits

Login to the MiPermit portal, select 'Buy Digital Permits' and then 'Residents permits'.

You’ll need your vehicle registration number and a credit or debit card to pay for your permit.

Use your residents’ parking permits

Your residents’ parking permit is a digital permit. You don't need to display any type of permit in your vehicle. Your permit will be active straight after your application has been approved and paid for.

If you’ve added two vehicle registration numbers to your permit you need to activate the required vehicle on the permit. You can do this in several ways:

  • Login to MiPermit portal, select ‘Manage Digital Permits, and then ‘Residents permits’. Choose the permit you want to update and 'Select Active Vehicle' to change the active vehicle on the permit.
  • Login to the MiPermit smartphone app, select Permits from the menu, then choose the permit you want to update. Select 'Edit' to change the active vehicle on the permit.
  • Call MiPermit on 0345 520 7007

Please note, if you need to add a new vehicle or delete a vehicle registration from your account then you will need to call MiPermit on 0345 520 7007.
