Your common renewal questions answered.

I haven’t received my permit(s) in the mail yet.

With Australia Post, your permits will typically take 5-10 business days to arrive once we've processed them.

It's normal for your permits to arrive separately so if you haven't received them all yet, please be patient. 

If you still think they should have arrived by now, please call us on 8290 1333.

What happens if I miss the renewal deadline?

We can renew your permit(s) up to 30 days past the expiry date. If your permit(s) are still not renewed past this date, you will unfortunately have to apply for a new permit to be issued.

Is my permit valid after the expiry date?

No, permits are not valid for use after the expiry date. A parking infringement may be issued if a current permit is not displayed. 

I am the primary driver, but the car is registered to a company or someone else's name.

If this is the case and you want a Vehicle Specific permit for this car, you will have to provide documentation that lists you as a primary driver.  

In most cases, this can be done with insurance documents that list your name as a driver for the vehicle. Make sure the documents display both your name and the registration number.  

If the car is owned by a company, we will need a document like the above listing you as a driver. We will also need a signed letter on a company letterhead, stating you are the primary driver and that the vehicle is garaged at the address the permit will be issued to. 

There are multiple permit holders at our residence and the Vehicle Specific permit holder has moved.

If you live in a share house, permits issued to a housemate that has moved out will need to be cancelled. Permits can only be issued to residents living in the property.

Without a Vehicle Specific permit, as a household you can only renew and have one Variable permit.

If you need more permits, a current resident must apply for a new Vehicle Specific permit, providing proof of residency and registration documents.
