Disabled Parking Permit Information
A parking permit is available to any individual with permanent mobility problems or who is certified as legally blind.
An application form 83039 must be completed by the disabled person and the certifying authority within the last 12 months. Out of country authorities are not acceptable. The physician's license number must be entered when the certifying authority is an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner or a Physician Assistant.
The disability must be certified by one of the following:
Disabled persons must have either a current Florida Driver license or a Florida Identification card issued by the Florida Division of Driver Licenses. The parking permit will be issued for a period up to four years and will expire on the disabled person's birthday. The Hillsborough County Tax Collector's office issues four year parking permits free of charge.
A frequent traveler must check the box on the application form if 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. There are other situations when a second permit may be issued.
EXAMPLE: When a disabled individual must leave a permit in a motor-home that is parked in a handicapped parking space in the park and needs the second permit to use in another vehicle.
A wheelchair symbol suffix license plate may be issued to a disabled person who owns or co-owns a vehicle and qualifies for a parking permit. Also, a disabled veteran (DV) who has a DV license plate and qualifies for a parking permit may be issued a DV wheelchair license plate.
Vehicles with disabled parking placards or wheelchair license plates displayed may park at parking meters free of charge unless otherwise posted. Meters with posted maximum time limits are enforced after a four hour time period (FS 316.1964). The vehicle must be transporting the disabled person.
