Let us show you how to cut through the red tape and get a disabled parking permit. The handicapped parking permits required for use in public parking spots are issued by state and local governments in accordance with the regulations and laws of the state or the district.
We also give a rating scale to show how easy it is – or tough it is – to get a Handicap Parking Permit in your state. How do your state's fees and "degree of difficulty" stack up with other states?
In most cases, you will need to renew your Handicap Parking Permit every two years or so. Only a few states still issue "lifetime passes".
While states are throwing up ever more restrictions (see our article on how a bit of bad publicity makes it tough for everyone), our goal is to give you a clear step-by-step procedure for your state. Disabled drivers and passengers need better access.
