You are required by Florida law to get your handicap permit in the state of Florida if you have your drivers license or registration in Florida.
However, your permit is legal in every state. All states have agreed to reciprocate, so if you obtained your permit in another state which you have a license or registration, you can use your permit anywhere in the US including Florida.
A disabled parking permit may be issued only for a medical necessity that severely affects mobility. If you have a disability which makes you unable to walk 200 feet without stopping to rest or if you are legally blind you may qualify for a handicap parking permit.
If you are a Florida resident, the following are the requirements:
The application form HSMV 83039 must be accurately completed, certified and signed by a physician, verifying the disability. (This is where we are needed and can help).
When you go to the local tax collector, FLHSMV, DMV, or tag agency, there is a $15 fee for a temporary parking placard. Renewal of the temporary placard within the first year is free, and after a year its $15.
There is no charge for a Permanent Parking Placard.
If you have never applied for a disabled handicap pass before, you must apply for a handicap parking placard in person at a local tax collector’s office by bringing in the signed form. If it is not your first time with a pass and its still within the first year, you can reapply by mail.
The temporary parking placard hangs from your rearview mirror and can be taken down and stored away when not in use.
It is necessary to display it when parking in a handicap spot. You can also request a handicap plate if you choose, which is generally for permanent disabilities and a hanging rear view mirror placard is unnecessary.
If you are a frequent traveler or you are a quadriplegic, you can receive more than one placard.
If you are a disabled veteran, license plates are also available for Florida residents, as long as your disability is at least 50% service-related and verified by the Federal Government or the Veteran’s Administration. We can help you with this (Form HSMV 83007) also.
