Permits are now e-permits
Businesses based in Hackney can apply for a business permit for vehicles that are essential to the running of the business.
Paper permit holders should continue to display their permit until it expires.
If you're applying for a change of vehicle or address related to your permit, an e-permit will be issued.
It's quicker and easier to get your car covered with e-permits:
- start your permit today with no need to display anything in your vehicle
- civil enforcement officers can check your permit is valid using your vehicle registration number
The easiest, fastest and cheapest way to renew your permit is online.
