How to Register
You can register for the digital visitors permit service only if you are a resident of the area and have your Council Tax number to hand during registration. If you do not have this information, please contact the council for assistance.
Once registered, you can login to the portal using your registered mobile number or email address, and the PIN which was sent to you on completion of the registration process.
Using Visitors Permits by SMS
To use a visitors permit by mobile phone, you can text the word VISITOR to 61600 followed by the vehicle registration number to assign the permit. Visitor permits last up until midnight on the day it is activated and as such a duration is not required in your text message.
There is no need to display any type of permit in the vehicle, as the enforcement officers have a real-time list of authorised vehicles to check against.
SMS costs to 61600 may vary depending on your network provider. Please contact your provider for more information.
Using Visitors Permits Online
When logged in to the portal, select the Manage Digital Permits option from the menu and select Visitor Permits. From here, you can purchase visitors permits as well as use your purchased permits.
To use a permit, simply select the type of permit (depending on your provider), enter the vehicle registration, and the date for the permit to be effective for.
You do not need to place a permit in the vehicle.
Using Visitors Permits by Telephone
To use your visitors permits by telephone, simply call 0345 520 7007 and one of the MiPermit team will ask for the registration number of the vehicle, when you would like the permit to be effective from, and duration needed.
Please note that call costs to 0345 numbers are charged at no more than a national rate call and inclusive in your mobile minutes.
