Where can I obtain a handicap hangtag or placard?
Handicapped Placard for Drivers With DisabilitiesIf you're a permanently or temporarily disabled driver, visit your local DMV office to apply for a handicap parking placard or a handicap hangtag.
More than likely you'll be required to jointly complete an application with your physician, and this form is usually available for downloaded from your DMV's website. Depending on your physician's recommendation, your handicap placard or hangtag may be temporary (six months) or permanent (usually four years).
Placards and hangtags are universal. This means a handicap hangtag registered in Rhode Island, for example, will be recognized in every other state and most other countries.
NOTE: Handicap placards and hangtags will allow you to park in any space clearly designated for the disabled, unless the space is marked "Blue Placard Parking Only." A blue placard designates a permanent disability, while a red placard designates a temporary disability.
