Permanent Disabled Parking Permit


A Florida disabled persons parking identification permit may be issued to individuals with disabilities upon certification by a qualified medical provider. 

The Permanent Disabled Permit is issued to a qualifying individual for a period of up to four (4) years from the date of issuance and expires on the applicant's birthday. There is no charge for a four year disabled parking permit.

The disability must be certified by one of the following:

  • A Licensed Physician
  • Physician Assistant
  • Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner
  • Osteopath
  • Podiatrist
  • Chiropractor
  • Optometrist

An application must be completed by the disabled person and the certifying authority. 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.

Disabled persons must have either a current Florida Driver license or a Florida Identification card issued by the Florida Division of Driver Licenses.

Disabled persons renewing or replacing a parking permit must submit an application completed and certified by a medical provider within the last 12 months.

The placard can be transferred to any vehicle carrying a disabled person.Placards are issued to individuals who meet the standards, NOT to the vehicle.

If anyone improperly utilizes the disabled permit without the disabled person being transported, they can be issued a parking citation with statute fines up to $250.00 plus additional court fees.
