What you need for Renew your disability placard
If you have a permanent disability placard (expires every 5 years), the RMV will mail your new placard 2 weeks before your current placard expires. Upon receipt of your new placard, destroy your current placard as this one has been cancelled and is no longer valid.
If you have a temporary placard (issued for a period between 2 and 24 months), you will need certification from a medical professional that the placard needs to be extended or made permanent. A person may use the application for disabled parking or may send a doctor's request (recently dated and written on the doctor's professional letterhead). The doctor must include the following:
- Clinical diagnosis
- Duration disabled parking is needed
- Ambulatory range and use of ambulatory aid (if used)
- A statement whether you:
- Are medically qualified to operate a motor vehicle safely.
- Should be evaluated by the RMV via a road competency exam, or
- Are not medically qualified to operate a motor vehicle safely.
