DC Reciprocity Parking Permit

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. We can help you pick the right parking permit and renew it when needed.

Is a DC Reciprocity Parking Permit the Right Parking Permit for You?

The DC DMV issues reciprocity permits to individuals who are permanent residents in other jurisdictions. Reciprocal residency privileges are just that—privileges—so the DC DMV chooses exactly who is eligible for this type of parking permit.

The DC reciprocity parking permit is right for you if you are eligible for reciprocity and listed below:

  • 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

If you are also residing on a street that is zoned for Residential Parking Permits, you can obtain that permit for an additional fee. Reciprocity permits do not give you parking in restricted areas, but a residential parking permit can. If you do need more than one permit, USVRS can guide you through the process of procuring both!

Your Checklist

To get a DC reciprocity parking permit, 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.
