Zero CO2 emissions
The council reserves the right to check applications for vehicles with zero CO2 emissions.
DVLA records may say your vehicle has zero emissions when it actually isn’t a zero emissions vehicle. The only zero emissions vehicles currently on the market are full electric vehicles (EV). Where this occurs, permit prices will be based on vehicle engine size.
We may apply additional price increases if incorrect information was provided at application stage.
What evidence do I need? Click to get info
- letter from school confirming your name, address, vehicle registration, eligibility for the permit and the school’s STARS accreditation status
- proof of vehicle
We accept photographs of documents if you do not have a scanner.
