Disabled parking permits

Disabled parking permits are available if you have mobility problems or a severe disability.

A state-wide Disabled Persons' Parking Scheme operates in Victoria and the scheme has two categories with various parking concessions.

  • Category 1 - Disabled Parking Permit (Blue)
  • Category 2 - Disabled Parking Permit (Green)

A person may have one disabled persons' parking permit.

Please note that holding a permit will not guarantee a parking space.

Improving accessible parking

We are working progressively to upgrade more than 200 existing accessible parking bays around shops, parks and other services in Moonee Valley.

Our aim is to achieve best practice and meet our commitment to ensure people with a disability have the opportunity to use and enjoy local facilities and services.

For more information visit the accessible parking upgrade page.

Fees and permit duration

  • No fees apply
  • Disabled parking permits are valid for three years from the date of issue for people with permanent disabilities
  • Disabled persons' parking permits for organisations providing transport services for disabled people are valid for 12 months from the date of issue

Interstate and overseas visitors

Disability parking permits from interstate and overseas are recognised in Victoria. Provided the permit is current and valid, interstate or overseas disability parking permit holders may park in reserved disability parking spaces for the specified time only, and may also park in ordinary parking bays for twice the specified time (upon payment of any initial parking fee, if applicable).

The disability parking permit needs to be displayed in the vehicle and so it is advised that overseas and interstate visitors bring their valid permits when travelling to Victoria.
