Permit Display and Vehicle Registration

Permits are virtual and do not require the display of documentation.

Vehicle registrations are checked for proof of permit, so it is important to ensure your registration is identical to your application. 

Where submitting multiple registrations, please ensure your protected vehicle is the one in use. 

GMIT/APCOA are not responsible for errors in application or ensuring accounts are accurate.
