Who can receive a disabled parking permit?
A Florida Disabled Person Parking Permit may be issued to anyone with disabilities or organizations that regularly transport people with disabilities. The permit belongs to the disabled person and can be used in any vehicle that the disabled person is using. The disabled person’s Florida driver license or identification card needs to be available when permit is in use.

Temporary Permit: Issued for up to six months from the date of issuance, and may be extended as needed with a new certification. Form HSMV 83039 must be signed by both the applicant and physician or other qualified authority as listed above. The cost is $15.00, regardless of how many days the permit is issued. Those with temporary parking permits are not eligible to receive an additional placard.

Please Note: Vehicles displaying International Wheelchair Suffix and other license plates, including disabled veteran, disabled veteran wheelchair, Paralyzed Veterans of America, and motorcycle wheelchair emblem license plates, do not need a disabled parking permit to use handicapped parking spots.
