Over 80s Parking Exemption

The Timaru District Council congratulates you on still driving having reached 80 years of age and invites you to apply for the Over 80 Parking Exemption.

An exemption card will be issued for display on your car and you will be entitled to the following parking privileges:

  • Timaru - Free parking at any parking space governed by an individual parking meter, or in the "Pay and Display" Car Parks at the Library, Central Mall, Landing Services, Barnard Street, Cains Terrace, Sophia Street or The Bay Hill.
  • Temuka and Geraldine Only - Parking for twice the time specified on the sign.

There is no charge for the exemption card. You should produce your current Driver's Licence with your application.

Note: As it is necessary for driver's licence details to be verified, it is suggested you download and print out the form and either take it to your test for countersigning, or bring it to the nearest Council office or service centre along with your driver's licence.
