Accessible parking permits

Accessible Parking 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)

Long term permits are now 5 years. Short term permits are now 6, 12 or 24 months.

Replacing an existing permit

If you’ve lost your permit, you will need to complete a statutory declaration and organise a replacement on VicRoad’s Accessible Parking Permit website.  

Renew a permit

Renew a permit via VicRoad’s Accessible Parking Permit website. All current permit holders must undertake a medical assessment when they renew into the APP Scheme. Permit holders can now be assessed as having a permanent medical condition or disability and will no longer require medical assessments to renew permits.
