How can I get a handicap parking permit?

ANSWER

Typically, the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) runs the program. Check on your state’s specific process and criteria for who qualifies for disabled parking. Common conditions include:

  • Lung disease
  • Heart disease
  • Substantially impaired mobility
  • A disease that significantly limits your ability walk or to use your legs
  • Documented vision problems
  • Loss of one or both legs or loss of both hands, or limited use of these parts
