Parking Management Services of America is in full compliance with this new law affecting all valet parking operations in the city of Los Angeles. This new City of Los Angeles Valet Parking Law is now in full force. Parking companies operating without the needed permits from the LAPD will be cited and forced to shut down, thus effecting the businesses that they are providing the valet parking services for. Furthermore, this ordinance would require a valet parking operator in Los Angeles to obtain a permit, carry liability insurance, provide proof of off-street spaces for parking cars and ensure that valet parking attendants have valid California driver’s licenses. The ordinance would prohibit operators from using public street parking without permission and from blocking traffic.
Recently, NBC conducted special investigations exposing rogue valet parking operators throughout some of the city’s most troubled areas. Because of these investigations, businesses that are shopping to hire valet parking services in Los Angeles are strongly encouraged to select a company that has a Master Valet Parking Operator (VPO) Permit granted by the Los Angeles Police Department. This VPO permit will allow the parking operator to obtain an additional VPO Permit specific to the business that will need their valet parking services.
