Guest Overnight or Preferential Parking Permits*

** Per City of Los Angeles Ordinance No. 180059, new permit rates are in effect as of August 30, 2008.

Each household within a Preferential/Overnight Parking Permit District is entitled to one-day Guest Permits. Residents of Preferential Parking Districts are entitled to unlimited one-day Guest Permits (except where special conditions have been assigned by the City Council), while residents of Overnight Parking District may purchase a maximum of 25 guest permits per day.

Guest Preferential Permits cost $2.50 per permit and Guest Overnight permits cost $1.00 per permit.

Guest Permits are placards that are displayed clearly on the dashboard. Guest Permits are only intended for the use of residents of the district and their guests, and the re-sale or transfer of these Guest Permits to other users will result in the revocation of the resident's permit privileges.

A guest permit allows the permitted vehicle to park anywhere within the limits of the assigned parking district on streets posted with "Preferential Parking District" (for Preferential Permits) or "Overnight Parking District" Signs (for Overnight Permits). Parkers still must observe additional posted restrictions (such as red zone or street cleaning).
