Disability Parking Certificates

Disability parking certificates are issued to people and institutions (not vehicles) that transport people with disabilities. Certificates may be used in any vehicle that is transporting a person with a disability. The certificate may only be hung on the rear view mirror when the vehicle is parked. You will receive a temporary permit when you apply. The state will mail your certificate to you.

Application Process

Print and complete Disability Parking Permit Application (PS2005) (PDF). Your medical provider must sign the application also. If you are renewing a permanent parking permit you only need to fill out the top section. Your medical provider does not need to sign.
