Disabled Parking Permits

A state-wide Disabled Persons Parking Scheme operates in Victoria. There are two permit categories based on the applicant’s assistance needs:

  • Category 1 (Blue) permit holders may park in a bay reserved for disabled motorists for the specified time. They may also park in any ordinary area for twice the specified time (upon payment of the initial parking fee, if applicable).
  • Category 2 (Green) permit holders may park a vehicle in any ordinary area for twice the specified time (upon payment of the initial parking fee, if applicable).

City of Maribyrnong only issues parking permits to people with disabilities who live in the City of Maribyrnong. Payment of the initial fee in paid parking areas is consistent with the state-wide scheme but may not apply in paid parking areas outside the City of Maribyrnong.

Eligibility

Applicants must be examined and assessed by a medical practitioner. Level of disability is a factor in determining the eligibility for a disabled parking permit, age is not.

Organisations based in the City of Maribyrnong and recognised by City of Maribyrnong as providing a transport service for people with significant ambulatory or intellectual disabilities may also apply.

Fees

There is no fee for the Disabled Persons Parking Permit. Permits are issued for three years and a renewal notice will be sent. If your permit has expired and you have not received a renewal notice, please contact your Council immediately to obtain a replacement.

Lost Permits

For lost permits, please complete a statutory declaration stating the circumstances of the loss. A fee of $75 will be charged for replacing the lost permit. A replacement will be sent when a statutory declaration and payment are received.

Conditions of Use

  • The permit must be displayed on the left side of the front windscreen and the permit number and expiry date must be clearly visible from outside of the vehicle.
  • The driver using the permit must either be the permit holder or parking the vehicle for the convenience of the permit holder.
  • A permit is not valid if it has expired or the permit number or date is not clearly legible.
  • Only one permit per person is permitted.
  • The permit remains the property of Council and must be returned within seven days if requested by Council.

When requested by an authorised officer, a driver using a permit must:

  • State his/her name and address
  • Produce his/her driver’s licence
  • Produce the relevant valid disabled persons permit
  • Show proof that he/she or a passenger in the vehicle is the permit holder
  • If the officer deems that the permit is invalid, you may be asked to move the vehicle from the reserved space.
