Disabled Parking Permit categories

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

Two categories of Disabled 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 Disabled Parking Permit.

Categories
