  • a parent of a child with special needs who needs to be driven to the school, or
  • a parent who has to drive due to a disability, and your child attends the school

Permits for residents and carers

You can apply for a school safety zone resident or carer permit permit if you are:

We ask that, if possible, carers arrange their visits outside the restricted hours.

This permit applies to one specific vehicle. If you need a permit for another vehicle then you can apply again or get a day permit.

Day permit (4 per household per year)

A school safety zone day pass exemption permit allows a vehicle to access a school street to visit your home during the restricted hours.

It can only be used for taxis, medical reasons, tradespeople, or grocery deliveries.

This is an e-permit, so it is valid immediately and you don't need to display anything in the vehicle window.

The permit is valid for one day only. You can get one up to 30 days in advance.

You need to provide the registration number of the vehicle that will use the permit. If you don't know the registration number, you can apply for the permit later on the same day.

These permits are limited to 4 per household per year, so you should only use them for emergencies when you can only access a service during the restricted hours.

To be eligible for this permit you must live on a street affected by a school safety zone.
