Please Note:

  • The permit is for the exclusive use of the disabled person.

  • A permanent parking permit gives an individual permission to park in spaces reserved for individuals with a disability.

  • It may be used in any vehicle in which the disabled person is riding in.

  • The permit is designed to hang from the rearview mirror when the vehicle is parked, but should be removed when the vehicle is being operated.

  • A temporary permit is valid for six months.

If you have a temporary parking permit that is due to expire and you continue to have a qualifying disability, you must obtain a new medical certification Temporary Parking Placard form (Form B225T) before applying for another temporary parking permit. However, if the disability becomes permanent, please see Requirements for Obtaining a Permanent Parking Permit for Disabled Individuals.
