Resident parking permit
A resident parking permit is a digital parking permit that allows residents to park in paid parking zones.
- You can request a resident parking permit if you are registered at an address within a paid parking zone. See the Parkeergebieden in Amstelveen (Amstelveen parking zones) map.
- A resident parking permit is valid for one year.
- If you are planning to register at the municipality soon, you can apply for a temporary resident parking permit on inspection of a tenancy or purchase agreement for your new home.
- The permit is linked to a single vehicle registration number. The linked vehicle registration number can be changed at the Digital Parking Service Desk (Digitale Parkeerloket). A resident parking permit can only be linked to a vehicle that is registered in your name or your own lease vehicle.
- You can apply for two resident parking permits per address, except in the following zones where you can only apply for a single resident parking permit: 15, 20, 21, 30 and 33.
- A resident parking permit is not valid in the short-term parking spaces in the city centre (Stadshart) or the blue parking zones.
- The permit will be cancelled when you move to a different municipality or an address in Amstelveen that is not in a paid parking zone. The permit will be cancelled when you register at your new address. In this case, you are no longer allowed to use the parking permit.
What you need to do
Apply for the resident parking permit either online or at the municipal desk. You pay for the resident parking permit when you apply for it.
To apply, you need the following:
- Valid proof of identification
- Your vehicle registration certificate
- If you have a lease or company car: the registered keeper certificate or the contract in which the car owner or employer declares you are allowed to use the vehicle.
- If you are not yet registered in Amstelveen: the tenancy or purchase agreement for your new address.
You can renew your permit automatically after having done the above. To do so, however, you must submit direct debit authorisation. If you do not submit direct debit authorisation, you can renew the resident parking permit through the Digital Parking Service Desk (Digitale Perkeerloket) or the Parking Service Desk (Balie Parkeren) at City Hall in Amstelveen.
You can do this in three ways:
- Through the Digital Parking Service Desk (DigiD). Login and then click your name at the top on the right on the screen and enter the data.
- Request a direct debit authorisation form through firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive the form by post.
- Complete a direct debit authorisation form at the desk.
The costs for a resident parking permit are:
- First resident parking permit: €40,00
- Second resident parking permit: €80,00
In the event of death, if you cancel the parking permit or if you move to an address outside the area where paid parking applies, you will not be reimbursed any amounts that you may not have used.
When you apply online for a vehicle in your name, the resident parking permit will be activated immediately.
If the vehicle is registered in the name of a lease company or company, an online application will take two working days at most.
An application at the desk will be completed while you wait.
