Accessible Parking Permit

A statewide Accessible Parking Permit scheme currently operates in Victoria. The scheme has two categories with varying parking concessions, based on the applicants need for assistance.

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

1. An Australian Disability Parking (ADP) Permit (for individuals)
2. A Victorian Double Time Permit (for individuals)
3. An Australian Disability Parking (ADP) Permit (for organisations)

We'll work out which permit you are eligible for during the application process.

How to Apply:
This process is now on line. Application forms are available from Only permanent residents of the Glenelg Shire are eligible for a permit and the application form must be endorsed by a local medical practitioner or Occupational Therapist.

Upon Receiving a Permit:
The permit must be placed on the bottom left-hand side of the windscreen with the permit number and expiry date clearly displayed. A penalty can be incurred for unauthorised parking within a disabled zone.

Travelling Interstate:
Permits issued in Victoria may be used in all States and Territories, subject to local regulations being followed in each jurisdiction.

For further information contact our Customer Service Centres on 1300 GLENELG (1300 453 635).

The new APP Scheme streamlines the application process, making it easier, simpler and more consistent across the state.

  • Improvements to the Scheme include:
  • introduction of temporary permits for 6, 12 or 24 months
  • increased permit length from three years to five years for individuals
  • introduction of a permanent disability classification, so reassessments are not required for future permit renewals
  • a new single and secure state-wide permit design that will reduce the misuse of permits
  • the inclusion of occupational therapists as assessors, in addition to GPs
  • better alignment between Victoria with the COAG 2010 Australian Disability Parking Permit Scheme (ADPS)
