Disability plates are issued to qualified Massachusetts residents who are primary owners of a registered passenger vehicle or a motorcycle. A holder of a passenger vehicle disability plate is entitled to a temporary disabled placard. A person must demonstrate "good cause" or need for the placard in writing to the medical affairs. "Good cause" means a valid reason why the plate cannot be used and duration of the need. Placards may be issued for up to 24 months.
Disability placards are issued to qualified applicants on a temporary or permanent basis. A person may be issued only one valid placard at a time.
Disability Veteran plates are issued only to qualified Massachusetts resident veterans who meet the same qualifications as those applying for a disability plate. The DV plate letter (RMV35A) details your service connected disabilities. You must have a combined rating of at least 60% service connected disabilities for qualifying conditions. These are the same disabilities that would qualify you for disabled parking. These plates are issued only to qualifying persons who are the primary owner of a registered passenger vehicle.
