Disability Plates and Placards
A person with a qualifying disability is eligible for a disability license plate or parking placard. A qualifying disability is defined under Michigan law as either blindness or any condition that significantly limits a person's ability to walk or requires a wheelchair, walker, crutch or other assistive device.
Disability parking placards are limited to one per person. Permanent disability placards are valid for four years and are issued to individuals whose condition is not expected to improve. Temporary disability placards are valid from one to six months and are issued to individuals whose condition is expected to improve.
A vehicle must have a disability license plate or placard to legally park in a disability parking space. To be eligible for a disability license plate, the disability must be permanent. Disability license plates are issued to individuals with a disability, to a family member or caretaker living with a person with a disability or to facilities that serve and transport people with disabilities. The wheelchair disability symbol is embossed on each plate.
A person may have both a disability license plate and a placard. Free parking is provided only to vehicles displaying a disability placard with a yellow free-parking sticker. The requirements for obtaining a free-parking sticker are more narrowly defined than for a disability license plate or placard.
