Disabled Person Parking Permits
Disabled person parking permits are issued to persons who have been medically certified to have long-term, permanent or temporary mobility impairment, or who are certified legally blind or temporarily sight-impaired. In addition, disabled person parking permits may be issued to organizations that provide transportation services to disabled persons.
- A current certification is required on the initial issuance of a disabled parking permit. Certification must be provided by a Physician, Osteopathic Physician, a Podiatric Physician, a Chiropractor, an Optometrist, an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner licensed under the protocol of a licensed Physician, a Physician Assistant or by a similarly licensed physician from another state. When certification is provided on form HSMV 83039, the certifying authority's medical license number, the state they are licensed in, and their address must be shown.
- Disabled persons must have either a current Florida driver license or a Florida identification card issued by the Florida Division of Motorist Services. An exemption from the requirement to have a Florida driver license or identification card is provided if the disabled person is physically unable to visit or be transported to a driver license office to obtain this documentation. The disabled person must provide certification on form HSMV 83039 to claim this special exception.
- The expiration date of the disabled person parking permit issued to an individual will be issued for a period up to 4 years to expire on the applicant's birthday.
- Subsequent or additional parking permits may be issued to individuals who are certified as a quadriplegic, or are frequent travelers. (A frequent traveler must indicate on the application form that they frequently travel by plane, train, bus or boat and need one permit to park their vehicle at the place of departure and another one to use at their destination.)
Organizations, which provide regular transportation service to disabled persons, must provide either a FEID number or a Florida sales tax registration number to be affixed to the disabled parking permit. Organizations may be issued as many parking permits as they have vehicles providing transportation to disabled persons.
The disabled person parking permit must be hung on the rearview mirror of the vehicle used to transport the disabled person(s), when parked in a designated disabled person parking space.
- You can renew the disabled person parking placard registration in person or by mail.
Any person issued a blue permanent disabled parking permit must provide a certificate of disability on form HSMV 83039 completed and signed by a certifying authority within the last 12 months in order to renew the permit.
If your blue permanent disabled parking permit is lost or stolen, a replacement will only be issued if you submit the same documentation required for renewals.
