Disability Parking Permits 4/19/2010
The Idaho Department of Motor Vehicles issues special parking permits to any eligible disabled person who has a vehicle registered in their name. A special set of plates may also be issued bearing the international symbol for disability access.
How can I apply for a Disability Parking Permit?
Disability parking permits must be applied for in the name of the disabled person or by the parent or guardian of the disabled person. The permit is for the exclusive use of the disabled person and may be used in any vehicle in which the disabled person is riding. The applicant must submit a properly completed application containing a doctor’s certification of a serious or permanent disability which impairs the ability to walk. Forms can be obtained at any Department of Motor Vehicles office.
How can I apply for a Temporary Disability Parking Permit?
Temporary disability parking permits are provided for people whose ability to walk is seriously, but temporarily, impaired. The permit is issued to anyone whose medical care plan requires the use of crutches, wheelchairs, or other devices intended as an aid for walking. An application containing a doctor’s certification of a temporary disability which impairs the ability to walk must be filled out for a permit to be issued. Temporary permits are only valid for 6 months.
