You can register for waiver permits by completing the short registration form which can be found by clicking on the Register page on the cashless portal, if your local authority are offering the service.
Upon registering, you will need to supply your name/business name and address details.
To purchase a permit, login to the relevant portal and select the 'Buy Virtual Permits' menu item. Select the location, and the type of waiver required. Enter the vehicle registration number/s and the date that the permit is required for. A permit covers the entire day for which is has been purchased.
The cost of "restricted area" waivers are only refundable if the local authority deems that the chosen area is not applicable or safe for parking, and only if the local authority cannot suggest a more convenient or suitable parking zone. Non-yellow line waivers are not refundable if a space in the desired zone cannot be found.
A waiver permit can be used to be able to park a vehicle in a specified location when no visitors permits are available, or the vehicle is required to park in a restricted area within a location.
The permit does not need to be displayed in the vehicle, as the enforcement officers have access to a real-time list of vehicles that are covered by the waiver permits in the location.
