The permit is for vehicles that will be parked on the street within the residents parking zone. You do not need a permit to park on your driveway.

If your household has more than one vehicle registered to your address, both vehicles will need a permit to park on the street.

If you have regular visitors to your property, you can also apply for an annual visitor permit or up to 365 daily visitor permits per property per year.  However, if you have an annual visitor permit you will not be eligible for both. Once you have registered your details for virtual permits, you can purchase them as and when your visitors require them.
