This application may be submitted at any Deputy Registrar motor vehicle office in Minnesota or by mail to:
Minnesota Department of Public Safety
Driver and Vehicle Services Division
445 Minnesota Street
St. Paul, MN 55101-5164
The information provided by the applicant and health professional are required by state and federal guidelines.
The parking certificate is valid as specified by the Health Professional's statement.
1 to 6 months: Temporary certificate, 7 to 12 months: Short-term certificate, 13 to 71 months: Long-term certificate. The disability must be
re-certified before a new or subsequent parking certificate will be issued.
Persons with a permanent disability are issued a 6 Year Certificate. Renewal does not require a Health Professional's signature, but may be
selected randomly to re-certify eligibility.
If a Health Professional extends the length of the disability there is no fee for the subsequent parking certificate, however, along with the
Health Professional’s signature, the medical statement is required and must clearly state that it is an extension for a previously certified
disability.
If a certificate is requested due to specific medical condition related to pregnancy that could be aggravated by walking to the extent that the
life or health of the person or fetus may be endangered a Temporary certificate may be issued, not to exceed expected length of pregnancy.
MISUSE OF PARKING PRIVILEGE
Any unauthorized use or reproduction of the Department issued Disability Parking Certificate is subject to the revocation of parking privilege. A
person who is convicted of misusing the certificate is guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to a fine. Knowingly allowing the misuse of the
certificate or disability license plates shall result in the cancelation of disability parking privileges.
Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT PRIVILEGES DOES THE CERTIFICATE PROVIDE? (Reference Minnesota Statute 169.345)
A vehicle that prominently displays the parking certificate may be parked by or solely for the benefit of a physically disabled person: in a
designated disability parking space; in a non-restricted metered parking space without obligation to pay the meter fee, and without regard to
time limitation unless otherwise posted; or in a non-metered time limited passenger vehicle space unless otherwise posted.
M.S. 169.345 does not permit parking: in designated no parking spaces; in parking spaces reserved for specified purpose; where there is a
local ordinance which prohibits parking on any street or highway for the purpose of creating a Fire lane; or to provide for the accommodation of
heavy traffic during morning or afternoon rush hours. For privileges in other jurisdictions, please contact the appropriate jurisdiction.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR THE DISABILITY PARKING CERTIFICATE?
Any Minnesota resident who meets one or more of the definitions of a “physically disabled person” listed on the front of this application.
The parking certificate is provided to assist persons with a physical disability and provide better access to public places and facilities.
Only one parking certificate is issued per disabled individual if you also display license plates. You may qualify for two (2) certificates if you do
not have disability license plates. Parking certificates are valid until the last day of the month indicated on the certificate.
I'M NOT A MINNESOTA RESIDENT, HOW DO I GET A PARKING CERTIFICATE?
Residents of other states that are visiting or temporarily residing in Minnesota may use the parking certificate provided by their home state or
apply for a Temporary Certificate (6 months maximum). Residents of other states must make an application for Permanent Certificates in their
home states.
HOW DO I USE THE DISABILITY PARKING CERTIFICATE?
The parking certificate is issued to the disabled person, not the vehicle. Therefore, it may be displayed when parking any vehicle you are driving
or the passenger.
The parking certificate is to be displayed on the rear view mirror only when parked. Driving with the parking certificate hanging from the
mirror is illegal and very dangerous. If your disability makes it impractical to hang the parking certificate from the rear view mirror, it may be
placed on the dashboard when parked.
I HAVE HEARD THAT SOME PEOPLE WHO HAVE APPLIED FOR THE PARKING CERTIFICATE HAVE BEEN REQUIRED TO RETEST
FOR THEIR DRIVER LICENSE. IS THAT TRUE?
YES. If a person with a driver’s license applies for a disability parking certificate, the Department of Public Safety may check the driver’s license
record. If the department has no record of the disability, certification must be made that the disability will not interfere with his/her driving ability.
The department may ask the applicant for an interview to determine if any retesting is necessary. The Department of Public Safety has an
obligation to ensure that licensed drivers are qualified to operate a motor vehicle.
WHAT IF I MISPLACE/LOSE MY CERTIFICATE?
To obtain a replacement certificate you need to only complete Section A of this application (fee may be due).
When you report a lost parking certificate, you may be required to identify measures you have taken in order to prevent future losses.
When you report a stolen parking certificate, you may be asked to provide a copy of the police report regarding the theft.
If you have further questions regarding this application, contact the Driver and Vehicle Services Division at (651) 297-3377. If you have questions
regarding other services provided by Driver and Vehicle Services or Deputy Registrar Locations, please call (651) 297-2005, or TTY (651) 282-6555.

Applications (new and renewal) for commercial disability parking certificates must be made in a written request format explaining
the proposed certificate usage in conjunction with the transportation of disabled individuals, as well as internal controls (i.e.,
ensuring proper accountability) of the certificates.
1. To apply for an organization parking certificate, an agency must submit a written statement on letterhead stationary. Typically,
these applications are made by public or private social service agencies, care centers and nursing homes that have a frequent
business need to transport numerous disabled clients. Certificates cannot be issued to taxi or limousine services, as their
disabled patrons should have their own personal parking certificates. Also, an agency must certify that the commercial
certificate will be used solely for the benefit of a physically disabled person so defined in Minnesota Statute 169.345.
2. The statement must explain to the department's satisfaction how the agency meets the following criteria:
a) Identify vehicles that certificates will be used in when practical
b) State the organizations internal controls for managing/accounting for the certificates
c) State that the organization will immediately notify DVS in the case of lost or stolen certificates
d) State that the organization will contact DVS immediately of any abuse or suspected abuse of certificates issued to the
organization;
e) State that the organization is aware that failure to abide by the above listed requirements may well result in the revocation of
all certificates issued
3. There is a fee of $5 per commercial disability parking certificate requested. Organization parking certificates are issued
for
three-year periods.
4. The organization's Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) must be provided for processing
When renewing a certificate(s), please include the 6-digit number on your current certificate
and FEIN
Organization certificates cannot be issued until all information is furnished and all fees have been paid.
