You may park on roads where parking is prohibited unless there is a sign "no loading or unloading", and only if you are not causing an obstruction for:

  • up to three hours in England and Wales
  • without time limit in Scotland and Northern Ireland unless local restrictions apply - Check locally

You may park free of charge and without time limit on roads where payment is required unless signs indicate otherwise - Check locally

You may park without time limit on roads where parking is free but restricted by time unless signs indicate otherwise - Check locally

Do not drive or park in pedestrian zones unless local concessions specifically allow it - Check locally

Parking in car parks

Some car parks allow vehicles displaying the Parking Card to be parked free of charge.

Check car park notices or ask an attendant.
