Disabled Parking

This section provides the Registry of Motor Vehicles' current medical policies relating to disabled parking, including Permanent and Temporary Disability (HP) Placards, Disability (HP) Plates and Disabled Veteran (DV) Plates as well as the misuse of those placards or plates.


Disability (HP) Placards are issued to qualified Massachusetts residents on a temporary or permanent basis.


There are fees associated with obtaining a Disability (HP) Plate, excluding a Disabled Veteran (DV) Plate. See individual sections for fee amounts. All fees must be paid at the time of registration. No fees are collected at the Medical Affairs.


To submit an application for a Disability (HP) Plate, Permanent (HP) Placard, Temporary (HP) Placard or Disability Veteran (DV) Plate, the customer must take the completed application form and supporting documents to the nearest RMV Full Service Center or mail the forms and documents to the Medical Affairs.


Please allow at least 30 days for review and processing of any disabled parking application.
