Alabama Handicap Parking

Are you eligible for Disability Access License Plates and Placards in Alabama?

A licensed physician has to verify your impaired mobility and eligibility requirements. Particulars that differ from the general eligibility guidelines include:

  • You can’t walk 200 feet without rest
  • You’re restricted by lung disease, with a forced expiratory volume (FEV) for 1 second is less than 1 liter or your arterial oxygen tension is less than 60mm.hg at rest
  • Due to an arthritic, neurological or orthopedic condition, you are limited to walk

Disabled individuals and organizations that transport persons with disability have the opportunity to possess Disability Access Plates and Placards.

What is the Alabama application process for Disability Access License Plates and Placards?

You can get the Application for Disability Access Parking Privileges (Form MVR 32-6-230) by going to your nearest Alabama County Licensing Office or printing the document online.

Disability Access License Plates require a fee of $23, while the Disability Access Placards involve no charge.

You and your qualified physician just need to complete and sign the application with all necessary information. Once you finish this quick application, you have to bring it to your County Licensing Office.

How long are Disability Access License Plates and Placards Valid in Alabama?

Depending on the Disability Access License Plate and Placard, temporary or long-term, the time range varies:

  • Temporary Disability Access is valid for 6 months
  • Long-Term Disability Access is valid for 5 years

Long-Term Disability Access Plates and Placards need to be renewed by self-completing the application. Just verify that you still need the requirements and bring it back with no fee.

Are there Alabama Disabled Veteran Plates?

Yes, these Disabled Veteran Disability Access Plates are accessible for one vehicle of any Alabama resident veteran. Also, your impairment needs to be service-connected as certified by the Veteran’s Administration (VA).

Depending on your percentage of service-connected disability and car specifics, registration fees and benefits vary:

  • 10% or higher disability:
    • First plate exempt from registration fees
    • Limited to 1 plate
  • Over 50% disability or vehicle has special mechanical control devices:
    • $5 annual fee
    • No limit of plates issued
  • Vehicle all or partly paid for by VA:
    • First plate exempt from registration fees and ad valorem tax
    • Limited to 1 plate

Similarly, you need to complete the Application for Disability Access Parking Privileges and submit the proper identification card and a VA rating certification.

After experiencing the benefits of the Alabama Disabled Veteran Plate for 5 years, you need to renew the plate. Similarly, you can appreciate the benefits of Social Security Disability after filing a claim.

Can I report Disability Access Parking Abuse?

Unfortunately, there are instances where Disability Access Parking spaces, plates, and placards are taken advantage of by those who aren’t disabled.

If you notice someone running from a Disability Access space with no one waiting in the car, there’s a chance they shouldn’t park there.

By contacting the Alabama Department of Public Safety, you can report abuse. Write down the license plate number and a description of what you observed in order to accurately inform authorities:

  • Alabama Department of Public Safety, General: 334-242-4371
  • Alabama Department of Public Safety, Security Office: 334-834-3022

Where are the Alabama County Licensing Offices located?

Alabama County Licensing Offices are strewn throughout the state and they offer a variety of services, including driver records, registration and title transactions, license plate renewals, among other things. However, some offices only offer a portion of services.
