The Differences Between a Permanent and Temporary Parking Permit

An Original Temporary (red) disabled parking permit is issued to a qualifying individual for a period not exceeding 6 months from the date of issuance. Only one temporary permit may be held at a time.
How to Display a Parking Permit

Parking permits must be hung on the rear-view mirror of the vehicle when it is parked in a handicapped parking space. It is recommended that you remove the permit from the rear-view mirror when the vehicle is in use.
 
An Alternative Option to a Parking Permit

Use of My Parking Permit and/or Wheelchair Symbol License Plate

Parking permits and license plates with a wheelchair symbol are issue to the person designated on the registration and are not interchangeable between spouses or anyone else. (The disabled person's Florida driver license or ID card number is printed on the decal affixed to the parking permit to assist law enforcement.)

In order to park in a designated handicap parking space, the person that qualified for the permit/plate must be in the vehicle.
