Permanent Disability Parking Placard

If a permanent placard is needed, an application signed by a doctor will need to be submitted to the Secretary of State, Persons with Disabilities License Plates/Placard Unit, 501 S. Second St., Rm. 541, Springfield, IL 62756. Permanent placards or plates will take about two weeks to receive. The Township will gladly issue a Temporary Handicap Placard for 30 days until the applicant receives the Permanent Handicap Placard in the mail upon receipt of a copy of the completed form.

***The passage of House Bill (PA 97-0845), creates a new two-tiered parking program for persons with disabilities, allowing for only persons with certain types of disabilities, to qualify for meter-exempt parking in cities and municipalities.

In addition to the current blue (permanent) and red (temporary) persons with disabilities parking placards currently used in Illinois, a third placard, distinctive from the blue and red placards, will be introduced for those persons qualifying for meter-exempt parking.
