Disabled Parking Permits

Temporary Disabled Parking Permit

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

The Temporary Disabled Permit is issued to a qualifying individual for a period of six (6) months. The permit expiration date is determined by your physician and shall not exceed 6 months and the cost is $15.00 regardless of the number of days for which it is issued.

Temporary parking permits are available for any individual with a temporary disability 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.

If the person is still disabled when the temporary parking permit expires, an additional parking permit may be issued for no fee if the expiration is within a 12-month period from the date of the prior fee payment. However, a new application completed by the certifying authority must be submitted.

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.
