Apply for an accessible parking permit

If you have a significant injury or disability, you can apply for an Accessible Parking Permit – also known as a disabled parking permit – as a driver, passenger or an organisation.

To get a new permit, renew an existing permit or ask for a replacement, you need to apply through VicRoad’s Accessible Parking Permit website.

It’s easy – and generally faster – to apply online.
