Visitor Parking Passes

VPP - DC's Visitor Parking Pass Program

About the Parking Pass Program

The VPP program is designed to allow guests of District residents to park for more than two hours on RPP zoned blocks. A VPP is only valid during the hours of RPP enforcement and in the same RPP zone and ANC boundary as the residence. The passes are not necessary on holidays or other times when parking restrictions are not subject to enforcement.

The 2014 VPP is valid through September 30, 2014.

VPP Update

  • The 2014 VPPs have been issued to residents in Wards 1, 3, 4, 5 and some parts of Ward 6.
  • If you live in one of these areas but did not receive a Visitor Parking Pass or if live on an eligible RPP block please visit https://vpp.ddot.dc.gov/vpp/ to request a pass. You may also call (202) 673-6813 between 8:15 am and 4:45 pm, Monday through Friday, to speak with a DDOT representative. If you are eligible, DDOT will mail a pass to your address.
  • To those eligible residents that previously requested a pass, DDOT has confirmed your eligibility and will mail a pass to your address. 

Please Note: District residents cannot use a VPP in lieu of registering their vehicles with the District Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). 

If residents who receive a pass have guests that stay overnight frequently, then the visitor should register their vehicle through the Registration of Out of State Automobile (ROSA) program once a Warning Citation is issued by DPW parking enforcement personnel.

Residents who do not have a VPP may obtain a temporary parking pass at a police station or substation in the ward in which they reside.


To provide District residents with parking passes for their guests.
