Vehicle Change Procedure

It is important to always have the vehicle information in your account at The Permit Store match the vehicle that you have on campus each day. It is the responsibility of the student, staff or faculty member to update their vehicle information anytime there are changes to their account such as a license plate change, vehicle change, address change, etc., even if it is only on a temporary basis (i.e. original vehicle has gone in for repair and you have a different vehicle on campus).

The process is as follows:

STUDENTS:

For a short-term vehicle change:

If you will be using a different vehicle for less than a week or two, you do not need to transfer the decal but be sure to follow steps 3 – 8 so that the information in the computer matches the vehicle you have on campus

For a permanent or long-term vehicle change:

  1. Gently remove the current decal from the vehicle you will not be using. If the windshield is cold you can loosen the adhesive with a warm wet cloth or by turning on the defroster. Adhesive may be refreshed by rinsing the decal with warm soapy water and allow to air dry.
  2. Properly display the decal on the new vehicle.
  3. Go to The Permit Store,
  4. Log in with your user name and password.
  5. Click on “Account”
  6. Click on “Manage Permits”
  7. Click on the license plate listed for the active permit
  8. Select the desired vehicle from the “Change To” drop down menu (if the vehicle is not listed on the drop down menu, select “Add New Vehicle” and enter the required information.)
  9. Click on “Change Vehicle”
  10. Confirm that the new license plate is now listed on the active permit.

FACULTY & STAFF:

For a short-term OR long-term vehicle change

  1. Display the hangtag in the new vehicle.
  2. Go to The Permit Store,
  3. Log in with your user name and password.
  4. Click on “Account”
  5. Click on “Manage Permits”
  6. Click on the license plate listed for the active permit
  7. Select the desired vehicle from the “Change To” drop down menu (if the vehicle is not listed on the drop down menu, select “Add New Vehicle” and enter the required information.)
  8. Click on “Change Vehicle”
  9. Confirm that the new license plate is now listed on the active permit.

If your hangtag cannot be displayed, please make sure to follow the above procedure. Once the vehicle information is updated, the officers will know that the vehicle is yours. A warning for non-display may be issued, but there is no penalty with that type of warning.
