Disability Parking Placards and License Plates

 

Have You Ever Thought about Disability Parking Placards or License Plates?

 

If you or your partner have been diagnosed with a temporary or permanent disability, a disability placard or license plate that allows the use of disabled parking places and free parking in metered spaces for twice the time limit could make grocery shopping or appointments just a little easier. Maine's Bureau of Motor Vehicles offers several options for Maine residents. Qualification standards include a severely limited ability to walk, severe lung disease, the use of portable oxygen, certain cardiac conditions or if a mother is recovering from childbirth (temporary placards only).

 

Apply for Disability Plates/Placards (Form PS-18) with the medical certification section completed by a medical professional, your physician, physician's assistant, nurse practitioner or registered nurse.
