GET YOUR DISABILITY PLATE/PLACARD AT QUICK STOP!
Many plate types are available with a disability symbol (International Symbol of Access). The disability symbol provides the disabled applicant the privilege of parking in specially marked parking spaces provided for the exclusive use of physically disabled persons. The disabled applicant must be the driver or a passenger in the vehicle when the disability parking space is used.
You must complete a Disability-Hearing Impaired Plate/Placard Application or have one on file. The Medical Certification section on the application must be completed by an authorized physician (doctor of medicine, osteopathy, podiatry or chiropractic, licensed to practice medicine in the United States), a registered nurse practitioner or by a hospital administrator.
If the applicant is under the age of 18 and not capable of signing, a legal guardian may sign and indicate their relationship to the applicant. If the applicant is over the age of 18 and not capable of signing, a copy of a power-of-attorney form is required before the application can be accepted.
PLACARDS AND PLATES
Permanent and Temporary Disability Placards are issued to the disabled applicant and may not be duplicated, transferred to, or used by, another person.
Permanent Disability placards are blue and do not expire. AZ residents with a permanent disability can have up to 3 placards at a time, are eligible for disability plates on all qualifying vehicles registered to them, excluding trailers.
Temporary Placards are red and only valid for six months. At the end of six months, if the medical condition continues, a new application/certification is required.
LOST, STOLEN OR MUTILATED DISABILITY PLATE/PLACARDs
For placard replacements, if the current record cannot be located and the original application is unavailable for verification, a new application will be required.
A temporary disability placard will be issued with the same expiration date that appeared on the lost, stolen or mutilated placard. A new temporary placard with a full six-month use period may be issued upon completion of a new application.
OUT OF STATE VISITORS WITH DISABILITIES
All states recognize each other’s disabled parking placards and license plates.
If you are visiting Arizona from another state, you can use your placard or plate for disabled parking. You are subject to AZ parking regulations.
DISABLED PARKING REGULATIONS
With a handicap parking placard or license plate, you can park in spaces and zones designated and signed for people with disabilities.
A hearing-impaired license plate DOES NOT give you disability parking privileges. It is issued so that police, ambulance, and other services and drivers are aware that you have this hearing impairment.
