Who can receive a parking permit?
A Florida Parking Permit may be issued to certain individuals with disabilities upon certification by a qualified medical provider. A Florida driver license or identification card is required; however, Out-of-State or Out-of-Country customers may be eligible to receive a temporary parking permit.
The Permanent Parking Permit is issued to a qualifying individual for a period of up to four years from the date of issuance and expires on the applicant’s birthday. Renewals thereafter will be for a full four years. The Disabled Parking Permit Application must be accurately filled out by your physician before any original, renewal or replacement permit can be issued. There is no fee for a permanent parking permit.
The Temporary Parking Permit is issued for a period not exceeding 6 months. The Disabled Parking Permit Application must be accurately filled out by your physician before a permit can be issued. The cost of a temporary permit is $15.00. (This permit is typically issued to individuals with a temporary disability or Out-of-State/Country residents in Florida on a visitor status.)
Note: Parking Permits are issued to the person designated and are not interchangeable between spouses or anyone else.
How should the parking permits be displayed?
Note: Your driver license or identification card is required to be in your possession when the parking permit is in use.
The parking permit must be hung on the rearview mirror of your vehicle when parking in a disabled person parking space. It is recommended that you remove the parking permit from the rearview mirror when vehicle is in use. Constant exposure to the sun can cause the parking permit to become discolored and break.
