Disabled Person Parking Permits

To park in a designated disabled person parking space, the disabled person parking permit must be hung on the rearview mirror of the vehicle.

New Disabled Parking Permit Requirements

Effective October 1, 2012, any person issued a blue permanent disabled parking permit must provide a certificate of disability completed and signed by a certifying authority within the last 12 months in order to renew the permit. To renew your permanent disabled parking permit, fill out Form HSMV 83039 PDF and mail with your renewal notice to the Tax Collector office.

In addition, effective July 1, 2012, 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. The new law does not affect red temporary disabled parking permits, nor people who have disabled (wheelchair) license plates.

Titles & Registrations

To prove ownership of a motor vehicle, a title is required. Registrations prove current fees have been paid.
