Parking permits and visitor vouchers

Resident visitor vouchers

Buy vouchers so that visitors can park on the street during restricted parking hours in a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) or Permit Parking Area (PPA). 

Vouchers can be used anywhere that a resident's parking permit is valid. You do not need to have a resident parking permit to buy visitor vouchers.

Visitor vouchers are not available for every CPZ and PPA. 

Activate a visitor session

To use your purchased vouchers, you must activate each visitor session through your RBK permit account.

You’ll need to enter the vehicle registration number (VRN), the start date and the time.

If you are expecting visitors after 5pm on weekdays or over the weekend you can activate your vouchers in advance.

Login to activate vouchers

When logged in, you can:

  • see the duration of the sessions in the visitor permit type under ‘permit duration’
  • see the number of sessions where it states the number of permits
  • edit the vehicle on an active session at any point by clicking ‘edit vehicle’ 

How much it costs

Visitor vouchers cost:

  • 65p for 1 hour
  • £1.75 for 6 hours
  • £3.50 for 24 hours

The minimum single purchase is 10 sessions. 

Each household can buy up to 200 sessions a year. Refunds can be given to unused voucher sessions.

If you already have an active resident’s permit for the same address, your visitor permit application will be approved automatically. New applications will be required to provide evidence and will be subject to approval.

Paper vouchers (scratchcards)

If you do not have access to the internet, you can use paper vouchers for your visitors to visit you in a CPZ.

The scratch cards are sold as a book of 10. You can buy up to 10 books in one order.

A maximum of 20 books (200 scratch cards) can be used per address, per year.

Refunds for unused vouchers

If you’re moving away from your permit zone, you can request a refund for your unused visitor vouchers.

You must have a minimum of 10 unused visitor sessions remaining on your account to request a refund.

Email with one of your permit unique reference numbers and the reason for your request. 

Our permit team will process your request and keep you updated.

We’ll return the funds to the card that was used to make the original payment. If this is not possible, we’ll send your refund by cheque.
