Apply for a disabled parking permit

Victoria transitioned to the new VicRoads Accessible Parking Permit (APP) scheme system on 3 May 2021.

Improvements to the scheme include:

  • Introduction of temporary permits for 6, 12 or 24 months.
  • Increased permit length, from 3 years to 5 years for individuals introduction of a permanent disability classification, so reassessments are not required for some people’s future permit renewals.
  • A new single and secure state-wide permit design that will reduce the misuse of permits.
  • The inclusion of occupational therapists as assessors, in addition to GPs, and;
  • Double Time (green permits) and permits for organisations will continue under the new scheme.

Changes to previous process

We are no longer able to print disabled labels at the Customer Service centres, including urgent requests, as this is all now managed directly through the VicRoads portal.  This includes lost or replacement labels.  You will need to apply through the VicRoads portal for a lost or replacement label

General practitioners and occupational therapists can also use this system to complete the functional assessment for a patient's permit application.
