How to Obtain a Disabled Parking Permit in Ohio

Anyone who has a disability that limits mobility by

impeding the ability to walk can apply for an Ohio

Disability parking placard or disability plates. The

disability must be certified by the person’s physician

or chiropractor. Disabilities that qualify include

visual problems, cardiac, arthritic, respiratory and

orthopedic conditions.

Instructions Difficulty: Moderately Easy

Step 1

Determine that you meet the definition of disability according

to State of Ohio regulations and that the medical condition

can be certified as a qualified disability by a physician

or chiropractor.

Step 2

Obtain the application forms from the Ohio Bureau of Motor

Vehicles (BMV) website. Download “For, BMV 4826” for disability

plates. Complete the pertinent parts of the applicable

form.

Step 3

Request a prescription from your physician or chiropractor

which details the nature of the disability and how long the

disability is expected to last. The application will be rejected

if the expected ending date of the disability is not included.

Indicate if the disability is permanent. Placards expire

on the date specified by the physician or chiropractor but

cannot exceed five years.

Step 4

Take the application form along with the prescription from

the physician or chiropractor to any local Deputy Registrar’s

office, or mail it to Ohio BMV at the address on the form.

Enclose the proper fee amounts as shown on the form.
