Accessible Parking Permits

A new Accessible Parking Permit scheme has been introduced across Victoria. The new scheme launched on 22 March, and is designed to create fairer outcomes and free up accessible parking bays for the people who need them the most.

Permits give parking concessions to those with impaired mobility. There are three types of Accessible Parking Permits available to Victorian residents:

  • An Australian Disability Parking (ADP) Permit (for individuals)
  • A Victorian Double Time Permit (for individuals)
  • An Australian Disability Parking (ADP) Permit (for organisations)

The main changes for drivers with disabilities or injuries are that:

  • You’ll need to start the application or renewal process online, before you visit the doctor
  • Accessible parking permits will be extended from three to five years
  • People with permanent disabilities will no longer need to be re-assessed in the future.
