Disabled Parking Permits made easier

Do you need to apply for a new Disabled Parking Permit, or renew or replace an existing permit?

The Victorian Government has introduced a simpler process now known as the Accessible Parking Permit Scheme. A new online system is available to help streamline the application process. Improvements include:

  • Permanent permits are valid for five years rather than three years
  • A new permanent disability classification has been introduced, so that reassessments are not required for future permit renewals
  • A new single and secure state-wide permit design that will reduce the misuse of permits
  • The inclusion of occupational therapists as assessors, in addition to GPs.

All existing Disabled Parking Permits will remain valid until their expiry date or until 30 June 2023, whichever date occurs first.
