DC Reciprocity Parking Permit Renewal

One of the services that the District grants to temporary and part-time District residents is reciprocity permits. The process of obtaining the right parking permit in DC can be very confusing if you aren’t sure where to start. The team at United States Vehicle Registration Service has years of experience guiding full time, part-time, and temporary residents of the District through the parking permit process.

If your DC reciprocity permit is eligible for renewal, you can do so online if you have the right documents. This can also be done in-person by your USVRS team member. If you aren’t sure whether or not you can renew your permit, keep reading!

Is This the Right Parking Permit for You?

To renew your reciprocity permit, it must first be eligible for renewal.

The following reciprocity permits are good for one year and are eligible for renewal:

  • A full-time student attending school in the District
  • A member of Congress
  • A personal staff member of a member of Congress
  • A presidential appointee
  • A member of the United States military on active duty
  • A diplomat
  • A part-time District resident
  • A District resident with a take-home company vehicle

Not listed above? If you are listed below, your reciprocity permit is not eligible for renewal:

  • A temporary district resident (these reciprocity permits are valid for only 6 months and are non-renewable)

If you live on a street that is zoned for Residential Parking Permits, you can also obtain that permit for an additional fee. Your RPP may not need to be renewed at the same time as your reciprocity permit.  

Your Checklist

To get a DC reciprocity parking permit renewal, you need specific information to prove that you are eligible. These details and information will change depending on why you need the permit.

Since the information needed varies wildly, we suggest working with your USVRS representative to determine exactly what is needed.
