State Qualifications for Handicap Parking Permit Applications

The qualifications for a handicap parking permit often vary from state to state and are controlled by each individual state’s Department of Motor Vehicles.

In addition to qualifications, there are handicap laws with varying degrees of punishment when broken. Considering some states have rather lofty ramifications associated with not following their handicap laws, you must both understand and abide by the specific handicap qualifications and laws in place in each state. However, it can be rather difficult to find quick and easy access to this information, especially when you are traveling to a different state or are new to the process of getting a handicap placard. Even when you just want to stay updated on current rules, regulations, and qualification for handicap privileges, state websites aren’t always that easy to navigate. Luckily, Dr. Handicap has the solution. As a first-of-its-kind online service that serves as an intermediary between handicap drivers and state DMVs, our one goal is to make it easy to find each state’s requirements and qualifications for handicap placard usage and the associated parking privileges. We can even help connect you with local, licensed physicians who can evaluate your qualifications for handicap parking and certify your disability. We help with this because most states require you obtain disability certification from a licensed physician before a handicap parking permit application can be processed. If required, the physicians can also help write prescriptions for any medications needed in relation to the disability that qualifies you for handicap privileges. If you have any questions about how to start the process or need help finding the information for your state, give us a call at 1-844-386-7463 or send an email to our support team at We will happily direct you to the resources you require.

Please select your state to learn more about their Handicap parking programs, disability placard applications, requirements, and qualifications for handicap parking in your state.
