Disabled Parking Permits in Idaho
How to obtain plates and placards
To qualify for disability parking plates or placards (sometimes incorrectly referred to as “handicapped stickers” or “handicapped hangtags”) in Idaho an applicant must qualify as a disabled person which includes any person who is unable to walk 200 feet or more unassisted by another person or without the aid of a walker, crutches, braces, prosthetic device or a wheelchair; or without great difficulty or discomfort due to any of the following impairment types: neurologic, orthopedic, respiratory, cardiac, arthritic, blindness, or the loss of function or absence of a limb or limbs. In summary, the determination is one made by the applicant and the applicant’s physician.
You can seek either plates or a placard by completing and sending in Idaho’s application for disability parking identification. A doctor's certification is required.
