I agree.  But I didn't tag it, I just pointed out how it had been tagged.

It is along the lines of a driving licence, but not exactly the same (as I
understand it).  Which
means it should probably be access=permit (discussed here a few months ago).

It's not like access for cars (you're in a car, you have a driving licence,
access is permitted).  It's
not like access for bicycles (you're on a bicycle, you don't need a
licence, access is permitted).
You can drive a golf cart along what are essentially wide footpaths IF you
have a permit.  You
can't drive to the city in a low-loader ferrying a golf cart, unload the
golf cart and just drive it
along those paths with impunity, you have to get a permit or risk a fine.

For more info, follow the links I gave previously.
