Temporary Handicap Placards

About Temporary Handicap Placards

Temporary placards are only issued to those who have a temporary disability and are issued for 6 months.  If necessary, placards may be renewed for an additional 6 months.

Placards may be used with any vehicle in which the handicapped person is a passenger, regardless of whether that person owns the vehicle.
