How to apply for a Florida Handicap Parking Permit

Many customers ask how to apply for a Handicap Parking Permit. Below is a breakdown of how Handicap Parking Permits are issued and how to do so. Section 320.0848, Florida Statutes, provides the authorization for the issuance of disabled person parking permits for both long-term and short-term mobility impairments and those certified as legally blind by an optometrist. Permits may be issued to driver license and ID card holders.

Disabled parking permits can be issued in two ways:

Permanent Parking Permit – Persons with long-term mobility impairments, or who are certified as legally blind, qualify for a permanent disabled person parking permit or license plate. Permanent permits and license plates are valid for four years and must be renewed by the permit holder’s birthdate. There is no fee for this parking permit.

Temporary Parking Permit – Persons with short-term mobility impairments may receive a temporary disabled parking permit for up to six months as specified by a certifying medical authority. If the need for the temporary disabled person parking permit exceeds six months, an additional temporary permit may be issued.

Any customer applying for a new permit or renewing or replacing their current disabled parking permit must provide a completed HSMV 83039 form, Application For Disabled Person Parking Permit, completed and signed by a certifying medical authority. The certifying medical authority must sign within 12 months prior to submitting the application. If you are replacing a permit that has been reported lost or stolen, you must also provide a completed HSMV 83039 form.

  • A podiatric physician licensed under Chapter 461;
  • An optometrist licensed under Chapter 463 (sight only);

  • A physician assistant licensed under Chapter 458 or Chapter 459; or
  • A similarly licensed physician from another state if the application is accompanied by documentation of the physician’s licensure in the other state and a completed HSMV 83039 form signed by the out-of-state physician verifying his or her knowledge of this state’s eligibility guidelines.

Disabled person parking permits:

  • Must only be used by the permit holder. The permit holder must have their Florida driver license or ID card on-hand when using the permit.
  • Must be hung from the rear-view mirror, with the permit number visible from the front of the vehicle, when the vehicle is parked. The permit should not hang from the rear-view mirror when the vehicle is in motion.
  • Must have a valid, yellow registration decal attached to both sides of the permit.
  • Must display on one side, the permit holder’s driver license or ID card number, or the authorized organization’s FEID number.

Can’t Renew Your Florida Vehicle Registration Online?

  1. Toll Hold, you owe money for using a toll road somewhere in the State of Florida.
  2. Financial Responsibility stop, You owe money to either the State of Florida or another third party for a transaction related to your vehicle.
  3. Insurance Stop, your insurance coverage has lapsed and you need to provide new insurance information.

With so many people moving to Florida everyday we see a steady influx of questions in regards to out of state title transfers and registering your vehicle in Florida. The goal of this article is to give you a step by step breakdown of how to register your out of state vehicle in Florida.

Step 1.
Move here! Everyone loves South Florida. The sunshine, sandy beaches. Where else would you like to be?

Step 2.
Get a Florida Drivers License. The easiest way to get your vehicle registered in Florida begins with obtaining a FL Drivers License. Once you have one we can then register the vehicle to this Drivers License and to the address linked to that Drivers License.

Step 3.
Obtain the title to the vehicle that you wish to register. There are multiple ways of doing this. If you own the vehicle and do not have a loan through a bank then you most likely already have your physical paper title to the vehicle. If you do currently have a loan on the vehicle then we at Broward Tag and Title would have to submit a request to the financial institution requesting the title for transfer. The same process applies to leased vehicles as well. Once Broward Tag and Title submits the request to the financial institution we must wait for the institution to complete the request and send us the title.

Step 4.
Complete the transfer and issue a FL License Plate. Once we receive the title from either you or your financial institution; we will then complete the transfer.
