How To Get A Handicap Permit In South Carolina

Disabled Person North Charleston, SC

If you live in North Charleston or somewhere else in South Carolina and you have a qualified impairment, then you can apply for a disabled parking placard and/or license plate from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

Types of Disabled Permits in South Carolina

Special permits are available to those who have both a temporary disability, or a permanent one. For a short-term disability you can get a temporary placard, or if you have a lifelong disability, you can receive both a permanent placard and/or a disability license plate.

Disabled Parking Rules

Only the person that the permit was issued to is allowed to use the placard or license plate. To prevent illegal use, South Carolina recently started including a photo of the issuer on the placard.

In addition, when parking in a handicapped space you must have your issued disability certificate with you.

Applying for A South Carolina Disability Permit

To apply for a disability placard or license plate you can do it by mail or in-person through the Department of Motor Vehicles. You’ll need to submit the following:

  • A completed Disabled Placard and License Plate Application (Form RG-007A)
  • A medical certificate from a licensed physician
  • A prescription order with an original signature
  • Payment for the fees
  • Proof of veteran eligibility, if you are applying for veteran plates

Larry Conner

I met Richard through my daughter. I fell 8 feet in February 2011 and broke the L2 vertebra in my back!! Over a period of two years, I realized I was going to need help. I came to meet with Richard to talk about my accident. It was the best thing I ever did! My case went on for a little over 3 years and I am very pleased with the outcome Richard helped me obtain. He is an excellent attorney!
