Disability Parking Permit categories

The Disabled Persons' Parking Scheme operates in Victoria. See VicRoads - Disability parking for more information on the scheme.

Two categories of Disability Parking Permit are available, each with different parking concessions based on a person's needs. Which permit you are eligible for is based on the VicRoads assessment criteria.

There is no fee for a Disability Parking Permit.

Categories

Blue parking permit (Category 1)

A blue permit is for people with a significant ambulatory disability and they cannot access a vehicle in an ordinary parking bay, or they are required to use a complex walking aid that prevents access to vehicle in an ordinary parking bay. A blue permit allows the permit holder to:

  • park in a designated disability car parking space
  • park for twice as long in a standard car parking space.

Green parking permit (Category 2)

A green permit is for people who need rest breaks when walking. A green permit allows the permit holder to:

  • park for twice as long in a timed car parking space.

A green permit holder is not allowed to park in a designated disability car parking space.

Both green and blue permits also have one of the following codes:

  • Code A: for a driver or passenger with a disability
  • Code B: for a passenger with a disability
  • Code C: for an organisation providing transport for people with a disability
  • Code D: for a temporary permit.
