Renew online, in person, or by mail; existing permits expire June 30
Use our parking permit portal to renew your residential parking permit or sign up for a new one by June 30, when 2021-2022 permits expire.
Starting July 1, you will need a 2022-2023 permit to avoid getting ticketed in Residential Preferential Parking (RPP) areas.
Residents with a 2022 permit should have received a renewal notice letter by May 1 with instructions. If you did not receive a notice, use the parking permit portal to renew an existing permit or apply for a new permit one.
If you do not renew your permit before July 1, 2022, you'll need to submit a new permit application, including your photo ID and current vehicle registration.
Use our parking permit portal to renew your existing permit, apply for a new permit, get 1- or 14-day visitor permits, or correct information.
Renew your permit online
Most residents can use their existing login information to renew parking permits on the portal.
Some residents may need to use a link code from their renewal letter to renew their permits. If you lost the letter, request the code by calling 311 inside Berkeley limits or (510) 981-2489.
If your renewal has incorrect information, such as listing the wrong RPP area, use the portal to apply for a new permit online. Likewise, residents whose permits are labeled "Suspended" in the online portal must re-apply to verify residency.
New online applications will be approved in 5-7 business days, and you will receive a confirmation receipt via email.
Renew by mail or in-person
To renew by mail, fill out the coupon included with your renewal letter, enclose payment by check or money order, and send it to the address listed in the letter.
To renew in person, bring your renewal letter to the Customer Service Center to complete the purchase.
In-person purchases may be completed by check, money order, Visa, or Mastercard.
Apply for a new permit
If you need to re-apply for a permit, you may do so via the parking permit portal, in person, or by mail. If applying by mail, download the application and mail the completed forms with your supporting documents and payment by check or money order to:
City of Berkeley Customer Service Center
1947 Center St, 1st floor
Mon-Thu: 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
If applying in person, bring your supporting documents to the Customer Service Center to fill out an application and purchase a permit by check, money order, Visa, or Mastercard.
Enforced through plates, not stickers
Once your application has been approved, your license plate will be your permit. You will not receive a sticker in the mail.
Be sure to renew your permit online, by mail, or in person by June 30.
