Disabled persons parking permits

A Disabled Persons' Parking Scheme currently operates in Victoria. VicRoads has more information on the Scheme.

Who can apply for a permit

The VicRoads assessment criteria is used by Council to determine if you can apply for a permit and which category of permit you are eligible for.

A Disabled Persons Parking permit can only be used by the permit holder in the vehicle that they are travelling in.

Permit categories

There are 2 types of permits with different parking concessions based on a person's need for assistance. Council determines which category of permit you are eligible for based on the VicRoads assessment criteria.

Blue parking permit

A blue parking permit is a category one permit. This permit allows the holder to park in a designated disabled car parking space. These spaces often have time restrictions on them, for example 2P (2 hour parking). The time restrictions must be adhered to. This permit does not exempt you from the restrictions.

In addition, category one permit holder is entitled to park for twice as long in a timed car parking space (non disabled parking bay). For example, the permit holder is entitled to park for two hours in a one hour car parking space.

The permit holder is also exempt from paying for parking in a timed parking area, but only within the Moreland City Council area. Disabled parking permit conditions vary from Council to Council and you may not be eligible in other areas.

Green parking permit

A green permit is a category two permit. The permit holder is entitled to park for double the time period in a timed car parking space. 

Category two permit holders still have to buy a ticket or put money in the meter in a timed parking area. For example, if the area specifies 1 hour parking, you are required to purchase a ticket covering the first hour and then you will be entitled to an additional hour.

This permit does not allow the holder to park in a designated disabled car parking space.  

Where to display a parking permit

Permits must be clearly displayed so the permit number and expiry date are visible from the exterior of the vehicle.

Fee

There is no fee for a Disabled Persons Parking permit.
