Permit Expiration Dates

What's Happening Now?

Permits are going Virtual! The next time your RPZ permit expires (see the chart below), we will no longer give you a physical decal. Your license plate(s) will be stored electronically. If you order a guest pass, you will still receive a physical hangtag.

To view the exact date when your Zone will move to virtual permits, read our FAQ.

Two-Year Expiration Cycle

Most RPZ permits are active on two-year cycles. Every permit in each Zone expires at the same time, not two years from the date that you bought it. RPZ permits are not prorated.

If you are applying for an RPZ permit within 60 days of your Zone's expiration date, you may want to apply for a Short-Term permit instead. Then, apply for your regular permit after the current permit cycle ends. See below for a list of Zones and permit expiration dates.

For more information on renewing your permit(s), replacing them, and more, explore our RPZ FAQ page.
