Are you eligible for a disabled parking permit in the State of Florida? In Florida, permits can be issued to people who meet certain criteria. People who have sight impairment, those who are legally blind, and those with certain injuries, medical conditions, or paralysis are eligible for one or more disabled parking permits.
Parking can be quite difficult in Ft. Lauderdale and surrounding areas of Florida. In order to make your life more convenient, it may make sense to get a disabled parking permit. The first step is to determine if you are eligible. You should go to your doctor and find out whether or not it may be a good idea to apply for this permit.
Temporary or Permanent?
Is your disability temporary? If you’ve broken your hip or leg, odds are you will not need the permit forever. A temporary permit will help you - and it will last up to six months. If you have a condition that may last longer than 6 months, then you should consider applying for a permanent disabled parking permit.

- Osteopathic Physician
