District Resident Rental Car Parking Permit

The world of DC parking permits is complex and almost impossible to understand even for lifetime Washington, D.C. residents. We are well-versed in all of the rules governing parking permits and can help you determine what parking permit you need, what you need to get that parking permit, and how to renew it once it’s time.

Is This the Right Parking Permit for You?

The DC DMV issues temporary rental car parking permits to District residents that live in neighborhoods zoned for Residential Parking Permits. This permit is free of DMV charges and can be kept for up to 15 days. After those 15 days, you can renew the permit by submitting all of the same information.

This permit is right for you if:

  • Your street is zoned for RPP
  • You are temporarily using a rental car in place of a car with a valid RPP permit
  • CAUTION: This may not apply to you if you are using the rental car in addition to a permitted car

Your Checklist

If you need to get a District resident rental car parking permit, you will need to gather together the below documents to give to your United States Vehicle Registration Service representative to take to the DMV on your behalf:

  • 2 photocopies of your DC driver’s license 
  • Proof of valid vehicle registration for the rental car
  • A valid rental agreement that clearly lists:
    • Your name
    • The vehicle identification number (VIN)
    • Make
    • Model
