[Disabilities that Severely Impair Ability to Walk]
Greetings,
In order to better serve our applicants, the New York City Department of Transportation’s (DOT)
Parking Permits for People with Disabilities (PPPD) Unit has put together a list of frequently asked questions that may
help guide new applicants through the application process.
How do I know if I am eligible for a PPPD permit?
If you are a resident or non-resident of the City and have a permanent disability that seriously impairs mobility (YOUR
ABILITY TO WALK) and requires the use of a private vehicle for transportation, you may be eligible. Please note that
commercial vehicle plates, dealer plates or plates for a rental vehicle cannot be listed on a PPPD permit.
What documentation must I provide for a PPPD permit?
Applicants are required to provide the following documents:
A state-issued driver license, non-driver identification card, or an NYC Municipal ID (IDNYC). Please ensure
that the name and address on your application matches the address on your identification card.
A signed application and attached additional supporting medical documentation (dated within one (1) calendar
year of your application) of your disability that severely impairs or limits your ability to walk from a Medical
Doctor (M.D.), or Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.). Please see the Medical History Page and the Medical
Documentation page on the types of acceptable medical documentation of your disability that severely impairs
or limits your ability to walk to submit with your application. You can also contact the medical certification unit
directly at 347- 396-6552 for any questions about the required medical documentation.
What type of vehicle information is required?
Applicants are required to provide a copy of current and valid passenger vehicle registration(s) for each license plate that
will be listed with the permit (maximum of three plates). Please do not send photos of a vehicle’s windshield sticker. DOT
will not accept any license plate number(s) that have an outstanding parking violation judgment with the New York City
Department of Finance (DOF). For more information about outstanding parking violation judgments, please visit the DOF
