Buy your annual residential parking permit in person

You will need to buy your residential parking permit in person if:

  • You wish to pay by cash, cheque, or debit card (credit card cheques are not accepted).
  • You are not the registered owner or lessee of the vehicle.

To uphold your privacy and protect you from fraud, we need your permission to allow ICBC to share your vehicle and insurance information with us. Therefore, you are required to apply for your permit in person, rather than send a spouse or a friend.

How to attach your decal

Peel off the liner and stick the decal in the following place:

  • Cars: on the inside, lower-left corner of the driver's side windshield
  • Motorcycle: on the left, front fork
  • Scooter: under the front of the seat, on the seat support

Your vehicle may be ticketed and towed if you stick your decal on with any other method, such as tape or plastic.

Do not give your decal to another driver. They are non-transferrable.
