Disabled Parking

The Disabled Persons Parking Scheme operates throughout the State of Victoria. The scheme provides two categories of permits.

Category One (blue) permits enables a person with ambulatory disabilities or significant intellectual disabilities to park in a bay reserved for disabled motorists only, or for twice the specified time in a standard parking bay.

Category Two (green) permits allows a person whose disability requires them to take constant rest breaks, but does not require additional space for entering and exiting their vehicle, to park for twice the specified time in a standard parking bay.

A disabled person who holds only a Category Two permit, or who does not hold any permit, cannot use a parking space reserved for the disabled.

A disabled parking permit must be displayed at the left hand side of the front windscreen, so that the permit number and expiry date can be seen from the outside.

The application (available below) must be completed by the applicant and the applicant’s doctor.
