Directions for Adding a Vehicle to a Parking Permit

To prepare for License Plate Recognition and having your license plate be your "permit", you will need to register your vehicles and associate them with your current "permit". It is your responsibility to keep your vehicles registered and up-to-date in your parking account.

7. If you selected ‘Add a New Vehicle’, you will need to enter your vehicle information. The license plate, state, make, color and style are required. If you do not have a license plate, enter the last 8 digits of your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) as the license plate and enter the full VIN in the VIN field. Once you have entered the vehicle information, click 'Next>>'.

License Plate Entry Hints:

  • Do not enter any spaces in the license plate even if there are spaces.
  • Passenger vehicles do not use the letters I, O and Q in the second or fourth position (for California).
  • Commercial vehicles do not use the letters I, O and Q (for California).
  • If you have a personalized plate with less than seven characters, or if you have a special character within your plate (heart, star, etc.), you will skip the special character and enter in the rest of the characters remaining on the plate.
  • If you have a new vehicle with a temporary, paper license plate, use the last 8 characters of the VIN as the license plate and enter the full VIN in the VIN field. Please note that VINs do not contain the letters O, I and Q so that they are not confused with the numbers 0, 1 and 9.

8. Once a vehicle has been successfully added, you will get a confirmation at the top of the screen. To delete vehicles from you permit, click the 'Delete' button next to the license plate. The 'Delete' button will only be visible if 2 or more vehicles are associated with the "permit". If only 1 vehicle is displayed and you want to delete it, you must first add a new vehicle and then delete the other vehicle.
