Disabled parking permit
The Road Traffic Act authorizes the police to grant parking permits to seriously disabled persons or for the transportation of such persons. Introduced in 2001, the new disabled parking permit is a plastic-laminated card containing the holder’s name and photograph, validity details and the EU logo.
Unlike the previous one, the new permit is no longer specific to an individual vehicle. The new parking permit will be valid in all European Union member states. The fee is payable as the permit application is submitted.
1) an impediment due to an illness, disability or handicap which can be considered to prevent the person from walking independently and which, when assessed as a whole, has been placed at minimum in handicap class 11 under section 18 a of the Employment Accidents Insurance Act; or
2) visual acuity which in the better one of the eyes can at maximum be defined at 0.1, or which, when assessing the person’s vision as a whole, corresponds with handicap class 17 under section 18 a of the Employment Accidents Insurance Act.
The medical certificate should indicate the duration or permanent nature of the disability. The certificate should also provide details on the effects of the disability on the applicant’s ability to drive.
A disabled parking permit is normally granted to the disabled person him/herself, although he/she may not be driving the vehicle. The parking permit is valid for up to ten years, or, in the case of a temporary disability, for the probable duration of the disability.
