Disabled Parking Permits

Apply for a disabled parking permit

Victoria has transitioned to the new Accessible Parking Permit (APP) Scheme and online administration system. 

This means that our residents and organisations who require a new permit or need to renew or replace a permit will need to apply with the new application process on the Accessible Parking website www.accessibleparking.vic.gov.au.

The new APP Scheme and online system will streamline the application process, making it easier, simpler and more consistent across the state. The new permit also will better align with the COAG 2010 Australian Disability Parking Permit Scheme (ADPS).

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 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;
  • Double Time (green permits) and permits for organisations will continue under the new scheme.
