Residents Permits

Registering for residents permits

To register for your digital Residents Permits, you will need your Council Tax account number for verification. You will also need to supply your postcode and house number to then be able to select your property from the search field to continue registration.

The registration process will ask for your details to set up your account, and a PIN will be sent to you by email/SMS in order that you can login to your newly created account.

If you experience difficulties with registering, please contact MiPermit on 0333 123 8008.

Purchasing Your Residents Permits

When logged in to the MiPermit portal, select Buy Digital Permits from the menu, and select the Purchase Residents Permit. You can then select the type of Residents Permit (if more than one type of permit is available to purchase) you require, enter the vehicle registration number and the date for the permit to start.

Documents you need to supply:

  • The vehicle insurance schedule (not the certificate) for the vehicle or the log book (known as the V5C), and:
  • One utility bill for your address from the following: annual council tax bill or gas, electricity or water bills (utility bills must be dated in the past three months)

You will need to provide credit or debit card details to complete your purchase.

Using your residents permits

As with all digital permits, nothing needs to be displayed in the vehicle.

To manage your Residents Permits, login to the MiPermit portal and select Residents from the main menu, and select Manage Residents Permits from the sub menu.

You can select your current Temporary Permit and edit the vehicle registration.

A Residents Permit can only be issued to a vehicle belonging to or hired by a person who is a resident within one of the Residents Parking Zones. You can enter the vehicle registration of your nominated vehicle on initial application or renewal of the permit. If you need to change your vehicle details, you can do so by logging in to the portal and selecting Manage Digital Permits.
