Driving with a disability doesn't have to hamper your driving experience. The Office of Motor Vehicle provides handicap license plates and placards for disabled drivers and passengers.
Disabled passengers and drivers with temporary disabilities may request a handicap placard.
Do you qualify for a handicap license plate? The Office of Motor Vehicles will determine, after reviewing your application, whether you meet the criteria for a permanent or temporary handicap license plate. The disabilities that typically qualify you are:
- Walking disability
- Lung disease
- Cardiac condition
The application process begins with your own physician. Print the Licensed Physician's or Organization's Certification for Issuance of a Special License Plate or Certificate for a Person With a Disability form and ask your doctor to complete it.
Take the completed document to any Office of MV, also known as Arkansas Revenue Offices.
You can also renew over the phone by calling your local Arkansas Revenue Office.
Specialty plates allow you to park closer to your destination. Your experiences getting to work, church, shopping, or just out for fun are much more pleasant when you don't have to struggle with walking great distances.
Arkansas honors unexpired disability placards and plates from other states. Likewise, current Arkansas placards and plates should be acceptable in other states. However, if you are traveling to another state and are concerned about whether your Arkansas disability plate or placard will be accepted there, it might be wise to check with that state's motor vehicle department, or simply look at our Drivers with Disabilities section for the state in question.
