In order to park in spaces designated for those with disabilities, you must display a handicapped parking permit or a disabled parking permit obtained from the Department of Transportation in the state in which you are licensed and your automobile is registered. There are two types of handicapped parking permits — those for temporary disability and those for permanent disability. If you have a disability permit that must be renewed, it must be done in the time period specified by the department to avoid being ticketed.
Obtain a disabled parking permit renewal application from the Department of Transportation. Call your state's DoT or Department of Motor Vehicles and request the paperwork for renewing your parking permit. Some states, such as Nebraska, have a separate renewal application, while other states, such as Texas and Minnesota, require you to use the original application form.
Complete the renewal application. The renewal applications do not require you to visit the doctor again to have her complete a physical portion of the form, but you must provide your name, address, driver's license number, car make, car year, license plate number and Vehicle Identification Number.
Submit the disabled parking permit application form to the Department of Transportation. The specific address to which the application must be sent is indicated on the application form. In many cases, there is no fee to renew your handicapped parking permit, but in some cases there may be a fee. For instance, Texas has a $5 fee for temporary disability parking permits.
