You must upload all current documentation. 

Required Documentation:

  1. Any Photo ID
  2. Current Maryland Vehicle Registration (Your valid RPP Area address is required unless you have a Maryland registration and are a full-time student with a current Student ID.) See below for more information.
  3. One form of Proof of Residency, such as:
  • A Current Lease that all parties have signed. Verbal confirmation is not sufficient. Customers showing a lease as proof of residency are still subject to relevant laws limiting the number of permits that may be issued to a residence. Please bring a copy of your lease that clearly identifies all persons residing in the dwelling unit or you may be denied permits.
  • Sub-lease agreements that are not signed by the landlord must be accompanied by the original signed lease.
  • Proof of home ownership (settlement papers)
  • Current driver’s license that reflects your current address
  • Utility bill in your name, reflecting current address, that is no less than 30 days old

You may need additional documentation under certain circumstances:

If the vehicle is registered out of state and in your name:

  • You must switch your vehicle registration over to Maryland before being permitted to purchase a parking permit decal unless you are a full-time student or a member of the military.
  • Out-of-state students and members of the military must purchase a Non-Resident Permit from the MVA before a permit/decal is released.  The non-resident permit or receipt for its purchase from MVA for the permit must be displayed to the PABC or at your community pick-up for the permit to be released. 

If the vehicle registration is out of state but in someone else's name:

  • A current notarized letter is required every time you renew. The letter must be dated and signed no more than 6 months from the day of acquiring your permit.
  • A Maryland state driver’s license reflecting the current address must be presented.
  • Current vehicle registration

If the vehicle is registered in-state but in someone else’s name:

  • A current notarized letter from the vehicle's owner granting you rights to drive this vehicle is required every time you renew. The letter must be dated and signed no more than 6 months from the day of acquiring your permit.
