Important things to know about handicapped plates and placards.
The recipient’s name must be on the vehicle registration in order to receive a handicapped plate.
If the vehicle is currently plated the existing tag must be surrendered at the time the handicapped plate is issued.
There is no limit to the number of handicapped plates that can be issued in the recipient’s name as long as their name appears on the registration. However, if the recipient has a plate in his or her name they are only eligible for one placard. If there are no plates issued in the recipient’s name and the condition is permanent then two placards can be issued.
Temporary placards can only be issued in 6 months increments and only one placard can be issued at a time.
For temporary placards the physician must indicate the length of temporary disability which cannot exceed 6 months. Any mark overs on the dates or dates exceeding 6 months void the application and a new application will be required.
A police report is required if a tag or placard is being replaced for a third time due to being lost or stolen.
