Disability Parking Permits

What are Disability Parking Permits?

permitDisability Parking Permits, sometimes referred to as “disabled parking permits, handicapped parking permits or wheelchair parking permits” are issued to qualified individuals (as determined by a Physician) to allow legal access to designated disabled parking spaces.

We offer three types of parking permits:

  • Permanent parking permits are good for three years and then must be renewed
  • Temporary permits can last from 3 to 12 months
  • Organizations that transport people with disabilities can also apply for a parking permit

How do I apply for my Disability Parking Permit?

Temporary and Permanent Placards are available at our office or by mail upon submission of a completed Parking Permit Application Form and fee of $40 for Permanent and $25 for Temporary. To access the application form, click on the button to the right, or contact us to have one delivered to you.

New applications must be filled out by both the applicant and by their doctor. Renewal of Permanent Permits only require the Renewal Form to be filled out by the applicant.  We welcome renewal applications from other Placard/Permit issuers.

Credit cards; cheques; money orders by mail; as well as debit cards and cash at the office will be accepted.

Where can I find more information?

We work to educate permit holders on the proper use of their permit as well as educating the general public and businesses on the need for designated disabled parking spaces.  City of Kamloops will honour the Parking Permits up to 3 hours, you do not need to input your information of fee at the Kiosk machines as long as your valid permit is hanging from the rear view mirror.  For more information you can access City of Kamloops web site www.kampark.ca
