    Temporary Disability Parking Placards

    Temporary Disability Placard

    Temporary disability parking placards are red and are issued for one to six months.  To obtain a temporary placard, you must have a disability that is expected to improve.  A qualifying disability is defined as blindness or any condition that significantly limits a person's ability to walk or that requires a wheelchair, walker, crutch or other assistive device. 


    A temporary placard may be obtained at any Secretary of State office The application must be completed by the applicant and a physician, chiropractor, optometrist, physician's assistant or nurse practitioner.  A medical professional's authorization is also needed for a yellow free-parking sticker - a placard alone does not qualify you to park for free.  Branch offices cannot accept photocopies of completed applications.  Blank application forms may be photocopied.  There is no fee for an original placard.


    Temporary placards cannot be renewed.  If the placard expires and the disability still exists, a new application completed by a physician, chiropractor, optometrist, physician's assistant or nurse practitioner is required.


    There is a $10 fee to replace a lost or stolen placard. Identification must be presented by the applicant when requesting a replacement placard. There is no fee to change a driver's license or ID card number on a placard due to a name change.
