Motorcycle and Scooter Parking

Parking Regulations

Motorcycles and scooters are not required to display a UCLA parking permit.  However, these vehicles must be parked in a designated motorcycle space at all times. Vehicles will be subject to a citation if they are parked in areas other than such designated spaces or if they are parked over the line and taking space from the adjacent parking spot.

A motorcycle and scooter parking space on campus is only available for daily use. Garaging/storing your vehicle on campus is prohibited unless you live in a UCLA Residence Hall and have written permission from Parking Services. If a vehicle appears to be abandoned or garaged, a warning of parking violation will be issued to the vehicle. If the vehicle is not removed from that location within 72 hours, it will be towed and impounded at the owner’s expense under storage authority 22669A CVC.

Towing & Booting

The following California Vehicle Codes are enforced for all UCLA campus streets, parking lots and structures.

California Vehicle Code Sections 22651 (I) and 22651.7 state that any vehicle found upon a highway or in an off-street parking facility that is known to have been issued five or more notices of parking violations to which the owner or person in control of the vehicle has not responded within 21 calendar days of notice of citation issuance, or the registered owner of the vehicle is known to have been issued five or more notices for failure to pay, the vehicle may be impounded until that person furnishes to the impounding law enforcement agency evidence of their identity and an address within this state at which they can be located and satisfactory evidence that the bail has been deposited for all notices of parking violations for the vehicle.

If you believe your motorcycle or scooter has been impounded, contact the UCLA Citation Review & Adjudication (CRA) office.  You will need to provide your license plate and last known location of the motorcycle or scooter.  CRA will confirm possession with Quicksilver Towing, Inc. and arrange for you to retrieve your vehicle. Booted or towed vehicles will only be released to the registered owner of that vehicle, or upon written consent of the registered owner. All outstanding penalties and fees against the vehicle must be paid and a valid driver license must be presented.
