A contractor may be issued a temporary parking permit when a resident in a residential zoned neighborhood requires home renovations or repairs. The contractor's vehicle must display commercial tags in the company's name. The parking permit is issued at no charge. You must present the following original documents at the DMV:
- Valid vehicle registration. Vehicle MUST display commercial vehicle tags.
- Proof of valid vehicle insurance.
- Statement from residential property owner certifying that construction, plumbing, painting, etc. is being performed on the property and estimated length of project.
- Copy of residential property owner's DC driver license or identification card.
The permit is free of charge and valid for up to 15 days at a time. To renew the permit all information must be resubmitted.
Although the temporary parking permit contains a sticker, similar to DC's registration sticker, the bottom portion of the sticker can be placed on the dashboard of the Drivers side of the vehicle.
