DMV: Renewing a Permanent Parking Permit

Renewing a Permanent Parking Permit

Holiday schedule:  On Friday, November 11, DMV offices will be closed in recognition of Veterans Day. Offices will reopen on Saturday, November 12, at 8 a.m. 


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.

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.
  • Submit application to the Department of Motor Vehicles by:
    • 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.
