Parking Permit / Reciprocity Fees

The Residential Parking Permit (RPP) allows any DC DMV-registered private vehicle, or vehicle with reciprocity, to be parked without restriction in the permit area of the vehicle’s registered address. To be eligible for an RPP, a resident’s street must be zoned for RPP.

Residential/Reciprocity Fee
Reciprocity Sticker (Students) $338.00/year
Reciprocity Sticker (Temporary DC Resident/Non-Renewable) $250.00/6 months
Reciprocity Sticker (Military, Presidential Appointees and Members of Congress) $100.00/year
Reciprocity Sticker (Diplomat) $100.00/year
Reciprocity Sticker (Part-Time DC Resident) $338.00/year
Reciprocity Sticker (District Resident with Take Home Company Car) $338.00/year
Residential Parking Permit (see tiered fee schedule below) $50.00/year*
Residential Parking Permit (Seniors, 65 or Older) $35.00/year

*$50 RPP fee is for the first vehicle only.

Note: Effective June 1, 2021, the annual fee for a one-year RPP sticker for the first vehicle registered at a legal mailing address will increase from $35 to $50, and additional fees will apply to other vehicles in that household.

The new fee structure that will apply to all eligible vehicles registered at a legal mailing address beginning June 1 is as follows:

  1. $50 for the first vehicle
  2. $75 for the second vehicle
  3. $100 for the third vehicle
  4. $150 for each vehicle beyond the first three vehicles

An exemption exists for one resident 65 years of age or older per household. They will pay a $35 annual RPP fee for the first vehicle registered at a legal mailing address. The fee for each subsequent vehicle registered at a legal mailing address will be identical to the tiered rates noted above.
