Disabled Parking Discs


If you have a disability, you can apply for a disabled parking disc from the municipality. This disc allows you to park in allocated disability parking bays and exempts you from parking provisions in certain circumstances.

To qualify for a disabled parking disc you need to have a letter from your doctor confirming that:

  • your mobility is severely impaired by an ongoing mental or physical condition, or
  • your mobility is temporarily but severely impaired.

Certain local authorities require the doctor to complete a section of the form, so the form needs to be collected beforehand. Please contact your local traffic department to confirm whether you require a doctor's letter or a form.

If you receive a disabled parking disc, you need to display the disc clearly in your windscreen.

Please note that the disabled parking disc issued by any local authority may not automatically be recognised by any other local authority.


To apply for the disc, you need to submit the completed form along with:

  • Your identity document (ID)
  • the doctor's letter
  • two ID photographs
  • the prescribed fee

Opening hours for traffic departments vary as well as the times during which you can apply for the disc.

Please contact your local traffic department for more information.
