Types of Permits

We may issue you with one of a number of different types of permit, according to your needs and our assessment of the circumstances. This list provides a brief description of what each of the different classes of permit is normally used for.

You can use this list to get a good idea of what options might be suitable for you, but you should understand that any permit we issue will be based on our assessment, not simply what you apply for.
