Your first Reader Card is free of charge to residents who can provide proof of address and proof of vehicle ownership in one of the roads mentioned.
The number of cards issued per household is dependent on the number of vehicles owned (or Company vehicles) that a household has i.e. if the household has two resident permits or can prove ownership of two vehicles the household will be permitted a maximum of two reader cards. A reader card will not be issued based on the number of adults in the household.
Each applicant will be provided with only one reader card free of charge.
