Vehicles that are eligible for an eco-friendly parking permit
The following vehicles are eligible for an eco-friendly parking permit:
- any vehicle that has been certified as having a low exhaust emission that produces 100g or less of carbon dioxide per kilometre
- a hybrid vehicle, first registered in Jersey before 1 July 2012, that uses an electric motor to assist a conventional engine, and has been certified as having a low exhaust emission that produces less than 120g of carbon dioxide per kilometre
- a hybrid vehicle, first registered in Jersey from 1 July 2012 onwards, that uses an electric motor to assist a conventional engine, and has been certified as having a low exhaust emission that produces less than 100g of carbon dioxide per kilometre
Your local dealer will be able to tell you whether your car is eligible, or you can check your vehicle online.
Many manufacturers also indicate which band level of emissions their vehicles fall into. They use labels that are very similar to those found on electrical goods.

Eco-friendly parking permit charge
The permit itself is issued free of charge after filling out an application form from the Parking Control Office at Sand Street.
When you have your permit you will be able to purchase half-price paycards and season tickets. You can buy them from the Parking Control Office at Sand Street.
How to use your eco-friendly parking permit
The parking permit must be clearly displayed on your windscreen whenever you use half-price paycards or season tickets.
The paycards / season tickets should be clearly displayed as well. They have a green stamp on them so they can only be used in vehicles with an eco-friendly permit.
You can use your reduced price paycards / season tickets in long and short stay car parks, and on-street parking. There is no difference in the parking regulations for eco-friendly parking permit holders (the maximum permitted periods in the short stay car parks remain the same).
The permits are also recognised at Sand Street car park, which is trialling an automatic number plate recognition payment system.
