Parking Permits and Reciprocity Stickers
On behalf of the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), which regulates parking in the District, DMV issues permits for special parking privileges to those who qualify. DMV also issues vehicle registration reciprocity privileges to citizens who are permanent residents in other jurisdictions, but who, by law, are allowed reciprocal residency privileges in the District. Reciprocity privileges are also issued to some District residents who are limited by their ability to obtain District tags. Please note that reciprocity is not a parking privilege.
