The EU parking permit must be renewed every two years.  An out of date parking permit is invalid and has no entitlements.

The DDAI automatically issue renewal forms to cardholders approximately three weeks prior to the card expiring with full instructions on how to renew. Renewal notices will be sent to the address to which the original permit was sent. In the event of a change of address it is important that you advice us in writing to the address below.

When renewing it is important to advise the DDAI of any corrective surgery or treatment that may have altered the level of the holder’s mobility in the ‘mobility’ section of the form provided. Failure to do so may constitute obtaining a permit by fraudulent means.

If for any reason you do not receive a renewal form or you require a renewal form in advance of the renewal date, please request one 094 936 4054 or 01 8103794, email This email address is being protected from spambots.
