Disability Parking & License Plates

A disability parking certificate, which is often hung by the rear view mirror, can be obtained from the Minnesota Driver and Vehicle Services. DMV.org is a great resource to learn about the process.

To obtain disability license plates, the person with the disability must be the owner of the car. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety has application and additional information.
