School Drop Off Permit Information

  1. School permits are designed to accommodate parents and guardians when dropping or collecting children from schools that are located within any of the controlled parking zones.

    You will need to supply:

    • Proof of vehicle ownership

    • Letter from respective school confirming your child's attendance to the school and the school must also confirm that you are eligible to collect the child in question.

    Photographs of documentation will be accepted if you do not have access to a scanner.

    This is a virtual permit which means that there is no need to display anything in your vehicle. Civil Enforcement Officers will be able to identify which vehicles have a valid permit from the vehicle registration number.

    Permits are single vehicle specific and not transferable between vehicles. Permits are zone specific and are not transferable between controlled parking zones.

    If you need to purchase a school 15 minute permit for multiple zones please submit an evidenced business case by email to for our consideration.
