Parking Permits for Persons with Disabilities

The Department of Motor Vehicles issues temporary (6 months or less) and permanent (up to 6 years) permits allowing persons with qualifying disabilities to park in designated spaces. Once approved, you may use the permit in any vehicle in which you are the driver or a passenger. You must complete a "Special Permit Application and Impairment Certificate" (DMV Form B-225) and Section B of the form signed by licensed physician, physician's assistant, Advanced Practice Nurse (APRN), or in the case of blindness, a licensed optometrist, ophthalmologist or a member of the CT Board of Education and Services to the blind.

 A qualifying disability affects mobility, is permanent and involves one or more of the following:

  • use of portable oxygen
  • legal blindness
  • limited use, or no use of one or both legs
  • inability to walk 200 feet without stopping
  • a neuro-muscular dysfunction that severely limits mobility
  • Class III or IV cardiac condition (American Heart Association standards)
  • severe limitation in the ability to walk due to arthritic, neurological or orthopedic condition
  • restriction because of lung disease to such extent that forced (respiratory) expiratory volume for one second, when measured by spirometry, is less than one liter or the arterial oxygen tension is less than sixty mm/hg of room air at rest
