How to get a disabled parking permit

A disabled parking permit is displayed on a parked vehicle carrying a handicapped person. This permit allows exemption from street parking charges and allows disabled drivers to park in a designated space. The following are the types of parking permits for disabled people that the state of New York offers:

  • Disability license plate
  • Temporary or permanent placard
  • Metered parking waiver

For a disability plate, you must have a vehicle registered under your name and you must complete the Application for a Parking Permit or License Plates, for Persons with Severe Disabilities. You must also show your vehicle registration information such as your current license plate or vehicle registration documents if this is the first time you are registering your car. You must also present the Vehicle Registration/Title Application and proof of your identity by showing any of the following:

  • Valid U.S. passport
  • NY driver’s license
  • State-issued ID card

The fee for a new license plate is $25. There is also a transaction fee of $3.75.

For a disabled placard, both temporary and permanent, complete the Application for a Parking Permit or License Plates, for Persons with Severe Disabilities. Don’t forget to include a doctor’s certification of your disability and signature on your application. You can submit the application by mail or in person to your local clerk. Disability placards come at no cost.

Parking meter fee waivers are also issued by your local clerk. You will be required to submit the Application for a Metered Parking Waiver for Persons with Severe Disabilities and your medical certification.

Keep in mind that you can use a New York disability placard or plate in any other state of the U.S.
