Obtaining a Handicap Placard

Are you in need of a placard for your vehicle indicating that you are handicapped? If so, you’ll need to deal with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to obtain the placard. Depending on what your condition is and what a doctor jots down, your placard may be issued permanently or temporarily. Despite its name, a permanent placard will only remain valid for a period of four years.

Before heading to the DMV to start the process of obtaining your placard, you’re going to need to visit a doctor so that he or she can provide you a written recommendation detailing why the placard is necessary. You and your doctor will have to take care of filling out what’s called an Application Form for Disabled Person Parking. Doctors that are eligible to fill out this form include but are not limited to chiropractors, general physicians, optometrists, and nurse practitioners.
