To qualify for disability parking plates or placards (sometimes incorrectly referred to as “handicapped stickers”) in Nevada, the applicant must be characterized as having a disability by a licensed physician who certifies an individual's disability by completing the bottom half of the application. The patient must have one or more of the following conditions to qualify:
The physician must also certify whether a patient's condition is subject to change and, if so, the length of time the disability is expected to last.
You can seek either plates or a placard by sending in Nevada’s application for disability parking identification. You may also apply at your local DMV.
The DMV issues disability license plates for cars and motorcycles, placards, motorcycle stickers and expedited service permits. Only those with a permanent disability qualify for license plates or permits. A disabled person with a reversible condition may obtain only placards or motorcycle stickers.

The physician must also certify whether a patient's condition is subject to change and, if so, the length of time the disability is expected to last.
Parking illegally in an accessible parking space carries a minimum fine of $250.
Nevada recognizes out-of-state disability permits. However, not all states may recognize Nevada disability permits.
