DMV: Renewing a Permanent Parking Permit

Renewing a Permanent Parking Permit



A permanent parking permit for a disabled individual is valid for the same term as his or her license or identification card, typically four to six years. At least 45 days before the permit expires, an invitation to renew the parking permit will be sent to the mailing address of the disabled individual on record.  Please note:  If you submit the renewal application prior to the renewal of your license or identification card, you will not receive a parking permit with the maximum period of time.  You will receive a parking permit with a two year expiration date.


Note: DMV no longer issues passenger car disabled driver license plates. However, if you already have passenger car disabled driver license plates, you may continue to use them by renewing your registration.


What to do:

NOTE: In lieu of certification, DMV will accept a VA disability certificate for blindness, amputation of legs or arms, or loss of use of legs or arms, traumatic brain injury, paraplegic and hemiplegic disabilities.
  • You can submit your application to DMV by choosing one of these options:
    • Going to any DMV Office.
    • Fax: (860) 263-5556
    • Mailing the completed application to:
    Department of Motor Vehicles
    Handicapped Unit
    60 State Street
    Wethersfield, CT 06161
The completed form can be mailed, faxed, or delivered in person to any full-service or satellite DMV office. If the qualified applicant renews by mail or fax, the DMV will mail the applicant a new permanent parking permit to the address on the application. If a qualified applicant renews in person at a DMV office, the DMV will provide a new permit to the customer immediately.
Please be aware that the expired permit will be cancelled. Continued use of the expired permit is unlawful and punishable by fine.
