Wyoming residents with disabilities may qualify to receive a disabled parking permit from the Wyoming Department of Transportation. The types of permits issued include:
- Permanent disability placards
- Temporary disability placards
- Disability license plates
- Disabled veteran license plates
People traveling to Wyoming can use their handicap placard from their home state, but must follow Wyoming’s specific handicap parking laws.
Anyone who receives a handicap placard must display it from their rearview mirror when parked in a handicap spot. The placard must also be removed from view prior to putting the vehicle into motion again.
A person who is found guilty of misusing or providing fraudulent information in order to obtain a handicap permit is subject to a fine of up to $100 for the first offense and a possible suspension of the permit for up to 60 days. Subsequent convictions could lead to fines of up to $250 and up to six months suspension of the permit.
