Parking placards for disabled individualsThe Department of Motor Vehicles issues parking permits (placards) for individuals who have a qualifying disability. There are two types of permits: temporary and permanent. Please remember that a parking permit requires certification from a medical professional.
Permits for a temporary disability have a $5 application fee and are valid for up to six months. A permit for a permanent disability has no application cost.
Permits for permanent disability are valid for the same term as a driver’s license or identification card and must be renewed. DMV will send a renewal notice to the permit holder about 45 days before expiration.
Motorcycle riders can apply for a license plate with the International Symbol of Access. These plates are issued only to a motorcycle registered in the name of a person with a disability.
Lost or damaged permits can be replaced by following these instructions.
